Description Robert Rauschenberg revolutionized postwar modernism with his experimental approach to the materials and content of art, setting the scene for Pop art, Conceptualism, and other movements that emerged in the 1960s. This book features nine pieces by Rauschenberg selected from The Museum of Modern Art's substantial collection of his work, including early examples of the artist's painting and sculpture, his famous Combines of the 1950s and 1960s, and works on paper and cloth from the late 1950s and 1970s that exemplify his adaptations of printmaking and collage and his embrace of imagery from popular culture. A lively essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art and in Rauschenberg's own life. 30 illustrations.
