Lot description
This print is one of the twenty-one images found in the 'Tribute 21' portfolio. The portfolio is a project of the partnered efforts between the publisher, Felissimo, New York, and UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). The revenue raised by the original publication release targeted donations to gift the proceeds to children's art programs and other charities. This edition number is an additional proof alongside the edition of 50. This project for the artist celebrates the varied arts and sciences and modes of societal and cultural achievements. The textural effect found in each image of the portfolio is anticipatory of Rauschenberg's later dye transfer work in his paintings. In excellent condition, not examined out of frame.

Prints from this portfolio, sets and/or individuals, can be found in the following collections: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, SF, CA, Museum of Modern Art, NYC and the National Gallery of Australia, among others.

American artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), was one of the most influential and prolific artists of the 20th Century. Credited with bridging the movements of Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Dadaism, and Pop Art, the artist strove to undermine the illusion that art has an exclusive meaning. Rauschenberg always experimented with innovative approaches to his work. From his ‘Erased De Kooning’ (1953) which literally erased one of De Kooning’s drawing as a form of art, to his ‘Open Score’ (1966) which playfully witnessed the act of chance with a tennis ball striking a gong, Rauschenberg knew no creative limits. Often stating that he wanted to fill “in the gap between art and life,” Rauschenberg deconstructed notions of high and low art, pushing the boundaries between objects of art and the everyday. In 1993, Rauschenberg was awarded the National Medal of the Arts and has had numerous retrospectives at such renowned institutions as the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Museum of Contemporary Arts (Los Angeles).
