Three flags a 1958 painting by American artist Jasper Johns. However, this flag has 48 stars instead of 50 which represented the U.S. states then. I like how this painting even tells history. I also really like how it looks three dimensional as if the painting is coming out of the paper. He took something as simple as the American flag and made a painting of it into something so eye-catching. The painting was acquired by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City for $1 million in 1980, to celebrate its 50th anniversary. This is a type of painting that will never go out of style and shows extreme patriotism.
