Jasper Johns, Three Flags, 1958 

While Johns’ work is generally considered to be Neo-Dadaist, he is often identified as a Pop artist due to his use of classic iconic imagery, as seen above.  Johns often utilized the well-known images as they neutralized the need for a subject matter and he could present simple objects as entirely new.
Happy Independence Day!
