Robert Rauschenberg's prolific skill as an artist ran the gamut with a desire for exploration in all media. He is truly considered a modern master of our times. Works featured are from L.A. Uncovered, a series of dynamic prints depicting the streets of Los Angeles and complex meanings of it's daily life, along side a sampling of pieces from other printmaking series. As a printmaker, Rauschenberg often integrated photographs of the everyday with images from great works of art from the past to bring us a disregarded urban landscape and a kaleidoscope of images from the artists' experience. His skill as a colorist is clear. From the hand of painter, sculptor and mixed media artist, Rauschenberg's prints are executed with refined detail and clarity yet retain an organic, painterly feel within the composition.
