James Rosenquist’s “F-111” is so familiar by now that memory has begun to smooth its shark-tooth edges and recall the Cold War period it exemplifies.

What’s jarring about its current installation at New York’s Museum of Modern Art is that, until now, museums may never have done justice to the piece. That’s reason enough to visit the fourth floor, where until July 30 the 86-foot-long behemoth can be seen as Mr. Rosenquist introduced the painting in 1965 at the Castelli Gallery in New York: a four-sided, wraparound mural for a space (23 feet by 22 feet) little bigger than a squash court.
