Robert Rauschenberg – Untitled (Native American with Truck)

Robert Rauschenberg, Untitled (Native American with Truck) is an original Color Pigment Print on wove rag paper. This print Untitled (Native American with Truck) is from the signed, numbered and dated edition of 100. Printed by UALE (Universal Limited Art Editions, Inc.).

Considered by many to be one of the most influential American artists due to his radical blending of materials and methods, Robert Rauschenberg was a crucial figure in the transition from Abstract Expressionism to later modern movements. One of the key Neo-Dada movement artists, his experimental approach expanded the traditional boundaries of art, opening up avenues of exploration for future artists. Although Rauschenberg was the enfant terrible of the art world in the 1950s, he was deeply respected and admired by his predecessors. Despite this admiration, he disagreed with many of their convictions and literally erased their precedent to move forward into new aesthetic territory that reiterated the earlier Dada inquiry into the definition of art.

Robert Rauschenberg’s art has always been one of thoughtful inclusion. Working in a wide range of subjects, styles, materials, and techniques, Rauschenberg has been called a forerunner of essentially every postwar movement since Abstract Expressionism. He remained, however, independent of any particular affiliation. At the time that he began making art in the late 1940s and early 1950s, his belief that “painting relates to both art and life” presented a direct challenge to the prevalent modernist aesthetic.

As Pop Art emerged in the 1960s, Robert Rauschenberg’s art was beginning to incorporate not only found objects but found images as well – photographs transferred to the canvas by means of the silkscreen process. Robert Rauschenberg transferred prints of familiar images, such as JFK or The Statue of Liberty, to canvases and overlapped them with painted brushstrokes. Using this new method Robert Rauschenberg could make a commentary on contemporary society using the very images that helped to create that society. In this respect, his work is contemporaneous with that of Andy Warhol, and both Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns are frequently cited as important forerunners of American Pop Art.
