Art, to him, for better and worse, was not just something you made. It was something you did. (Deborah Solomon The New York Times)
the forerunner of essentially every Postwar movement since Abstract Expressionism (Neene Mythos Wide Walls)

From the Inside Flap
An essential volume on the work of Robert Rauschenberg, this relevatory selection of rarely seen masterworks is curated in collaboration with the artist s estate and includes an extensive chronology. In a career of nearly sixty years, Robert Rauschenberg changed the course of art history, art making, and viewers' experience of art. An artist of protean creativity, he transformed the mediums of sculpture, painting, prints, and photography. He elevated seemingly casual, everyday images and embraced discarded and found materials, reintroducing content to art after decades when abstraction held sway. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
