Tate Introductions: Robert Rauschenberg
A lively and accessible introduction to the life and work of Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), one of the most inventive and influential artists of the post-war period. An important influence on Pop artists in the 1960s, Rauschenberg worked across a variety of media - painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, silkscreen, lithography, and performance - and actively collaborated with musicians, choreographers and dancers, and with engineers and scientists to pursue the potentials offered by new technologies. Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book offers a concise and engaging account of Rauschenberg's life, his art, and the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
