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 one exclusive or definitive meaning. Rauschenberg experimented with innovative approaches to art, challenging viewers and artists alike with his ambitious creations. From his ‘Erased de Kooning’ (1953), which was literally an erased de Kooning drawing, to his ‘Open Score’ (1966), which playfully exemplified the concept of chance, Rauschenberg knew no limits with his work. Often stating that he wanted to work “in the gap between art and life,” Rauschenberg deconstructed notions of high and low art, blurring the boundaries between fine art and the mere everyday objects. In 1993, Rauschenberg was awarded the National Medal of the Arts and has had numerous retrospectives at renowned institutions including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Arts (Los Angeles).
