Robert Rauschenberg, Artist

Born October 22, 1925 at Port Arthur, Texas

Died May 13, 2008 at Captiva Island, Florida

Made multimedia constructions, convinced some people his work was art, many people wrote effervescently about his constructs.

Had very little, to no actual drawing or painting skill.

Rauschenberg is survived by his son, Christopher; a sister, Janet Begneaud; and his companion, artist Darryl Pottorf.

R.i.P.

  1. Wow. I’d really like to hear more of your thoughts on Rauschenberg’s work sometime, especially considering your affinity toward (and talent for) abstract painting. Am I correct to assume you’re not a fan? I’ve often admired the aesthetic of his work, although have wondered why his was supposedly “worthy” of volumes of analytical praise, to the exclusion of others’.
