"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
