Painter, sculptor, printmaker and photographer Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) provided a crucial bridge between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. After studying at Black Mountain College under Josef Albers, Rauschenberg moved to New York where he formed close friendships with Jasper Johns and Cy Twombly, began his groundbreaking Combines, collaborated with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and co-launched with Billy Klüver Experiments in Art and Technology. He is considered one of the most innovative artists of his era.
