This video discusses the legacy of American painter and graphic artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925 – 2008), who blazed a new trail for art in the second half of the 20th century.
From paintings including flashing lights to a stuffed angora goat, Rauschenberg’s appetite for incorporating things he found in the streets of New York knew no limits. Pop art silkscreen paintings of John F. Kennedy sit alongside 1,000 gallons of bentonite mud, bubbling to its own rhythm… Rauschenberg even made a drawing that was sent to the moon.
Other than painting and sculpting, Rauschenberg also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking and performance.
