Robert Rauschenberg by Sam Hunter( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his illustrious career, Robert Rauschenberg has consistently challenged the prevailing ideologies and techniques of the art world. One of our greatest American artists, he redefined what materials were suitable for art, boldly rebelling against the predominant abstract expressionism of the time. This insightful analysis into Rauschenberg's work and life examines his bravery in pushing beyond technical and aesthetic frontiers as well as his influential dissemination of photography, film, and television, which altered the genre of traditional painting. Rauschenberg's seminal works -- from his "combines" (urban trash on painted surfaces) to his silk screens -- are reproduced here in full color. The author also discusses some of the artist's more recent projects, including ROCI, Rauschenberg's own exhibition organization that showcases diverse artists from all over the world. -- From product description

The Museum of Modern Art, New York : the history and the collection by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

22 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first and finest of its kind, New Yorks Museum of Modern Art has set the standard for all subsequent museums of twentieth-century art. After more than half a century of accomplishment and influence, it is difficult now to grasp the degree to which the fonding of this institution was a brave experiment, an adventure into uncharted territory. The fledgling museum proposed not only to limit its collection to works of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries - in itself a radical proposition in 1929 - but also to extend the boundaries of art to include modern disciplines unreecognized by other museums: photography and film as well as painting and sculpture; architecture and design - domestic and industrial - as well as drawings, prints, and illustrated books
