Jasper Johns arrived in New York in 1949, and six decades later he's considered one of the world's greatest living artists.

Something Resembling Truth collects together over 150 of his paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints from his 60-year career. It explores the innovations he made in printmaking, his use of studio objects and human casts in painting, and his famous abstract patterns known as 'crosshatchings'.

The exhibition includes some of his collages, where he incorporated details from famous works by Picasso and Munch, plus some of his collaborations with choreographer Merce Cunningham, composer John Cage and fellow artist Robert Rauschenberg.

There will also be some brand-new, never-before-seen work created by Johns specifically for the Royal Academy.
