Robert Rauschenberg was the defining force in contemporary art for nearly sixty years, creating a wealth of art more varied than that of any artist in the twentieth or twenty-first centuries. Rauschenberg was enthusiastic about pop culture and everyday objects and in his work used such elements as newspaper clippings, quilts, pillows, street signs, photographs, taxidermy animals, and tires. Rauschenberg experimented with painting, photography, sculpture, performance, collage, and printmaking, pushing each medium in new unexplored territories. Many of Rauschenberg’s prints are unique, even within an edition, as he embraced chance variations in each piece. The gallery is pleased to present an eclectic selection of the artist’s adventures in printmaking, including large scale tapestries.

Rauschenberg was raised in Texas. He studied art in Paris on the G.I. Bill, and then took classes at Black Mountain College, eventually relocating to New York. There he befriended Jasper Johns, and together they are now considered the most influential artists who reacted against Abstract Expressionism. He also grew close to John Cage and Merce Cunningham, and was the first artistic director for Cunningham’s dance company. In 1964 we was awarded the Grand Prize at the Venice Biennale, and his work has been exhibited extensively throughout the world since. Rauschenberg’s work is included in prestigious public and private collections throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles, CA), Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, CA), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY), Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, D.C.), and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY), among others.
