In a career of nearly 60 years, Robert Rauschenberg changed the course of art history, art making, and viewers' experience of art. An artist of protean creativity, he transformed the mediums of sculpture, painting, prints, and photography.
Rauschenberg elevated seemingly casual, everyday images. He also embraced discarded and found materials, reintroducing content to art after decades when abstraction held sway. This book covers the full span of the artist's career, from 1950 to 2007, focusing on key works from the collection of the artist’s estate.
Robert Rauschenberg includes many works that have not been shown since they were first made and exhibited more than 30 years ago, as well as masterpieces that have recently been seen in museum exhibitions.
