I agree that this small book is engaging and a fun read. Even more, I thought the images of Rauschenberg's work were very well chosen and by far the majority in color. I was shocked that Mary Lynn Kotz chose to show Rauschenberg's "Winter Pool" in black and white (tragedy!)in her book, "Rauschenberg/Art And Life"...it is in full color in this gem. I would buy this book first.

Format: Paperback
This is not a typical lecture. It is Leo Steinberg at his best--witty, learned, insightful--giving us a brief survey of Robert Rauschenburg's art from the early 1950s until the present day. The book is beautifully designed and printed, and makes a great gift for anyone interested in the New York art scene. A lot of book for the buck.

A lecture by the late Leo Steinerg, one of the leading lights of American Art History. It is personal and informal, fitting the occasion, an event honoring Rauschenberg, of whose work he was an early supporter. This is pleasant reading, particularly for those accustomed to the more complex style of his academic writing.

The only disappointment I experienced was in my failure to find any reason, which resonated with me, as to why I should be equally impressed by the work of this contemporary of mine. However, to many, Rauschenberg is a significant contemporary artist, for them, this graceful piece will evoke the glow that comes from shared sentiments.
