Robert Rauschenberg
It wasn’t until 1947 while he was serving in the U.S. Marinesthat he discovered his talent for drawing and his interest in the artistic representations of everyday objects and people. {draw:frame}

In 1952 Rauschenberg began his series of “Black Paintings” and “Red Paintings,” in which large, brushed areas of color were combined with collage and objects he found attached to the canvas. These “Combine Paintings” came to include some very odd and peculiar objects ranging from a stuffed goat to Rauschenberg’s own bed. In 1998 he was honored as The Guggenheim Museum put on its largest exhibition ever with four hundred works by Rauschenberg not only showing off the beauty but also the achievement and influence of it over the second half of the century. {draw:frame} While living and continuing to work Robert Rauschenberg’s influential life came to an end on May 12, 2008 at the age of 82 in Captiva, Florida. Even though he is gone he will continue to inspire artists to experiment and think outside the box as long as art and creative people are living. Sources Image Sources
