Robert Rauschenberg (1925 – 2008) was driven by an irrepressible curiosity and eccentricity that profoundly impacted the Pop Art movement. “Bicycle, National Gallery” uses his “combine” technique, in which objects and paint are paired to create an enormous collage brimming with mesmerizing color, energy and detail. Originally a student of pharmacology, Rauschenberg fell in love with art during a museum visit while he was enlisted in the Navy. Rauschenberg attained fame in the 1950s for combines, which united throwaway items such as tires, shirts, cardboard and metal scraps to reveal their beauty and evoke emotions. Rauschenberg’s combines inspired installation art in the 1970s, which is still thriving today.
Robert Rauschenberg (1925 – 2008) was a groundbreaking Pop Artist whose visionary work profoundly revolutionized the course of American and European art. From Texas, Rauschenberg had a voracious appetite for limitless experimentation with new techniques and unique materials, which broke all artistic boundaries. Embracing the arts of silk screening, digital imagery and set design, his most acclaimed creations were “combines,” giant three-dimensional works that paired paint with objects he found on the street, such as scraps of clothing, tires, furniture and cardboard. Rauschenberg’s work re-established the beauty of cast-off items, and solidified him as a pivotal figure in the Pop Art movement.
