Robert Rauschenberg: Works on Metal

"Rasputin's Revenge Early Winter (Glut)" (1987)
"... [Robert] Rauschenberg’s protean outlook ushered in a new era of postwar American art in the wake of Abstract Expressionism with a free and experimental approach that drew inspiration from conceptual, materialist, and gestural precedents. His inventive use of discarded materials and appropriated images eviscerated distinctions between medium and genre, abstraction and representation, while his 'flatbed picture plane,' which absorbed found objects into the realm of paintings, forever changed the relationship between artwork and viewer."
