RIP Robert Rauschenberg


I missed the news that Rauschenberg passed away on May 12. He was an early inspiration to me both aesthetically and as a role model of someone with an endless curiosity who succeeded in living the artist's life. He was also about as prolific as they come...David Byrne sums him up well here in the NY Times.
There is an interesting video here about his "collaboration" with Willem DeKooning.
