This piece features the combination of printing and painting. It takes some artists many years within their practise to take the leap and combine different mediums successfully. Rauschenberg opened up a great many doors to this technique being acceptable and encouraged in the art world. Not that it hadn’t been done previously, but his fearlessness took it to another level of excellence.
