Robert Rauschenberg

American, 1925 - 2008

A multi-talented artist who experimented with painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, technology, stage design and performance, Robert Rauschenberg never met a medium he couldn’t translate into art. His created iconic Combines, hybrids between painting and sculpture – including Monogram (1955-59), a paint splattered taxidermied goat in a car tire surrounded by street signs and Bed (1955). His signature silkscreen paintings, which brought politics, mass media imagery and street scenes into his work, such as Retroactive II (1964), portraying the recently-assassinated John F. Kennedy, are also among his most famous works. While he was a student at Black Mountain College in North Carolina in the late 1940s and early 1950s, he collaborated with his friends and peers, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Jasper Johns, David Tudor, Cy Twombly and Susan Weil. Robert Rauschenberg never stopped innovating throughout the course of his life. His early work anticipated the pop art movement with contemporaries like Andy Warhol. Rauschenberg was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1993, and received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts in 1995. He founded The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in 1990 to promote world peace and raise awareness about environmental and humanitarian issues. He died in 2008.
