Lot Details

Robert Rauschenberg is considered one of the most innovative and important Pop artists of the 20th century.

Rauschenberg was enamored by the Kennedys, first with JFK and Bobby, then later, Ted. In 2000, to celebrate the Millennium (Y2K) and to help raise funds for Ted's Senate reelection campaign, Rauschenberg created this magnificent, color IRIS inkjet print on wove paper entitled "Flag for Kennedy," published by Works on Paper, Inc. in Philadelphia. In this historic print, the artist makes covert references to the political process through a photomontage of images.

The print is signed and dated "2K" in pencil, and is numbered from the low edition of only 100. In 2008, an impression of this print was featured in an exhibition of Rauschenberg's prints entitled "LET THE WORLD IN" at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

In mint condition; never framed.
