One of the 20th century's most influential American artists, Robert Rauschenberg was known for his groundbreaking work as well as a spirit of generosity and social activism. Working in a wide range of subjects, styles, techniques, and mediums, Rauschenberg was a forerunner of many of the important artistic movements since abstract expressionism. He had a lifelong commitment to collaboration, working with performers, printmakers, scientists, writers and artisans from around the globe. Rauschenberg also stood behind many causes ranging from environmental protection to the role of art in education to the connection between freedom of expression and human rights.Today, Rauschenberg's work is not only heralded by curators and art historians, it remains highly influential and relevant to a new generation of artists.
