Inhaltsangabe: In the early 1960s, Rauschenberg made an abrupt change from the Combines and Assemblages that had earned him the reputation of "enfant terrible" of the art world. The result was a number of canvases, many of enormous size, that were created by using silkscreened images from magazines and his own photographs. Whether black and white or in vibrant colours, these works brought into play the artist's penchant for an intermingling of very personal imagery that could be at once sensual, political, theatrical or erotic. Roni Feinstein, curator of the major exhibition of these works at New York's Whitney Museum of American Art (December 1990 to March 1991), has written a text which is complemented by an essay by "New Yorker" art writer Calvin Tomkins.
From Publishers Weekly:
With their silkscreened images culled from magazines and newspapers, Rauschenberg's often monumental collages take the viewer on a roller-coaster ride through the America of the early 1960s. Astronauts, Army helicopters, JFK and baseball players, mixed with allusions to Velazquez and Duchamp, are a vibrant testament to this artist's propensity "to consider the world as one gigantic painting." Feinstein, curator of an exhibit at New York's Whitney Museum which this volume catalogues, convincingly interprets the paintings as an open-ended, associative dialogue about the ubiquitous role of the mass media in American life, with the technological present overwhelming the past. Throwing light on the smaller, lesser known, black-and-white silkscreen experiments that led to the artist's enormous, colorful canvases, Feinstein also belabors the familiar point that Rauschenberg was at the forefront of postmodernism, manipulating the image bank of culture. Tomkins's informal journalistic essay profiles the artist at work making the silkscreens.

Buchbeschreibung New York: Whitney Museum of American Art; Boston : Bulfinch Press, 1990. Buchzustand: Sehr gut. 179 S. Umschlag berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - In his ground-breaking Silkscreen Paintings of 1962-64, Robert Rauschenberg incorporated found images from magazines and newspapers and transferred them, through the silkscreen process, to canvas. Never the object of comprehensive critical attention in their own time, these works, in their appropriation of photographic images, now appear as precursors of the postmodern art of the 1980s. These spectacular Silkscreen Paintings, many of which are in private collections, are published together for the first time in this volume, with forty-five full-color and forty-six black-and-white reproductions, plus a double-gatefold reproduction of Barge, a monumental canvas more than thirty-two feet long. The silkscreen process permitted Rauschenberg to reuse, revise, and reorient his found imagery, stretching the expressive potential of both painting and the silkscreen technique. Roni Feinstein's insightful text reveals how these paintings evolved from early black-and-white experiments to later, often enormous, works that incorporated a complex palette, described by one critic as "midway in effect between Titian and color television." The Silkscreen Paintings also present Rauschenberg's wide-ranging view of the world. As Feinstein observes in her telling chapter on the content of the imagery, they are "fully expressive of himself-of his intelligence, his keen, observing eye, emotionality, sensuality, romantic nature, and theatrical bent. They reflect his enthusiasms, concerns, and political beliefs." Calvin Tomkins'fascinating essay, "The Sistine on Broadway," offers an eyewitness account of Rauschenberg at work on these canvases. After scrubbing with a paint rag on one of them, which included images of birds in flight and stop signs, the artist stepped back, marveling: "Look at that. The birds have freed the stop signs." In a sense, freeing the stop signs is precisely what all Rauschenberg's landmark Silkscreen Paintings can be seen to do. ISBN 9780821218334 Wir versenden am Tag der Bestellung von Montag bis Freitag.
