Farewell Rauschenberg.

Best known for his Pop Art collage work, Robert Rauschenberg has been one of my favorite painters since I was old enough to know about art. He died last night at age 82 in his home in Florida.

His work combined painting, printmaking, pop iconography and assemblage and touched on many of the milestone events of 20th century American life. He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
