The accompaniment to Gagosian Gallery's major exhibition of painting and sculpture by Robert Rauschenberg, organized in collaboration with the Estate of Robert Rauschenberg, this catalogue highlights the breadth and range of Rauschenberg's untrammeled and transformative vision and his enduring influence on subsequent generations of artists working today. Rauschenberg stands as one of the most inventive artists in American art, arguably the first of his generation to chart a viable course out of Abstract Expressionism and towards the formal integration of art and the mess of life. The catalogue includes an essay by James Lawrence and a text by John Richardson, as well as an extensive chronology that has been illustrated and updated.
