John Cage
Contemporary (post 1945) Graphic Arts
(Los Angeles, CA, September 5, 1912 - August 12, 1992, Stony Point, NY)

John Cage, who attended Pomona College in 1929-30, was an influential composer and philosopher whose inventive permutations of Zen Buddhism and Indian philosophy led to pioneering compositions based upon process and chance, rather than taste or intention. His influence was widespread throughout the arts and his friendships with and support of artists such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Max Ernst and, most notably, Marcel Duchamp, place him at the forefront of the 20th century's most influential American artists.
