Artist Bio

Robert Rauschenberg, who often collaborated with music composer John Cage, dance choreographer Merce Cunningham, and fellow-artist Jasper Johns, utilized collage techniques through which he infused elements of everyday life into his compositions. His initial appropriations of newsprint and many other things from mass culture preceded the Pop Art movement. He is often referred to as a Neo-Dadaist.

Additional Information

This artwork is from a portfolio of original prints published in recognition of Meyer Schapiro (1904-1996), a distinguished art historian who was very much appreciated by major contemporary artists of his day.

In 1974, a committee was formed to establish a Chair in Art History at Columbia University in Schapiro's honor. The portfolio, published in an edition of 100, was produced to raise funds to support the Chair. UND’s set of portfolio prints are numbered 71/100.
