A lively and accessible introduction to the life and work of Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), one of the most inventive and influential artists of the post-war period. An important influence on pop artists in the 1960s, Rauschenberg worked in a variety of media—painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, silkscreen, lithography, and performance—and actively collaborated with musicians, choreographers, and dancers, and with engineers and scientists to pursue the potentials offered by new technologies. Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book offers a concise and engaging account of Rauschenberg’s life, his art, and the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
