Robert Rauschenberg, Titan of American Art, Is Dead at 82


http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/14/arts/design/14rauschenberg.html?em&ex=1210824000&en=8c4579f706145a82&ei=5087%0A


quote:


"No American artist, Jasper Johns once said, invented more than Mr. Rauschenberg. Mr. Johns, John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Mr. Rauschenberg, without sharing exactly the same point of view, collectively defined this new era of experimentation in American culture. Apropos of Mr. Rauschenberg, Cage once said, “Beauty is now underfoot wherever we take the trouble to look.”

Those must have been the rocks he wrote names on(or was that Tuli Kupferberg?). In which case, it may have been the turtles with flashlights on their backs.   I sat through one of those intimate "happenings" of his at my local art center back in the age of POP! and Camp, so I have rather mixed feelings about Rauschenberg, may he rest in peace.
