Rauschenberg, art and life by Mary Lynn Kotz( Book )

34 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book--the only fully illustrated account of his life prepared with his full cooperation--we come face to face with Rauschenberg, one of the towering artists of the twentieth century. The reader travels along the crazy odyssey that is Rauschenberg's life, beginning with his childhood in the oil town of Port Arthur, Texas, his unhappy experiences in the navy, and his eventual decision to pursue a life in art. We follow him to Black Mountain College, where he studies under the stern but brilliant Josef Albers, and becomes friendly with Merce Cunningham and John Cage; to New York and classes at the Art Students League; we are told of his early marriage to Susan Weil; his friendships with Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, and encouragement from dealers Betty Parsons, Leo Castelli, and Ileana Sonnabend; and of roundtable drinking sessions with such artists as De Kooning and Pollock at the legendary Cedar Tavern in Greenwich Village. We experience the astonishing dexterity and range of Rauschenberg even as an emerging artist, with his forays into set and costume design for such dance masters as Paul Taylor, Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown; the creation of his now-famous combines (among them Bed and Monogram); and his eagerness to bridge technology and art, with the help of scientist Billy Klüver and others. In shot, there seems to be no artistic medium or form that has escaped Rauschenberg's grasp. In addition to the scores of works of art reproduced (paintings, combines, floor and wall constructions, prints made at U.L.A.E., and more), are personal photographs of Rauschenberg and his friends and family; creating in sum an intimate portrait of this living legend."--book jacket

Rauschenberg, art and life by Mary Lynn Kotz( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[The author] traces the life and career of American artist Robert Rauschenberg through a narrative that investigates the various stages, developments, and experiments of his artistic life. Beginning with some of Rauschenberg's latest activities around the world involving prints created in the cause of cultural exchange, [the author] also covers his work as a theatrical designer and performer. Rauschenberg's more recognizable efforts as painter, printmaker, and sculptor--these media are very much mixed in many of his works--are also well documented, both in [the author's] descriptions and in a series of excellent illustrations. Some details of the artist's private life are noted, but this is a thoroughly professional account that effectively focuses on Rauschenberg's varied creations
