    About The Work

    In the 1970s Robert Rauschenberg began using newspaper clippings, both images, and text, as an essential part of his printmaking. By including appropriated imagery into his work, Rauschenberg further expanded the definition of Pop Art. This approach also referenced the multimedia approach used by the cubists in the early part of the 20th century. 

    In “Umbrellas” Rauschenberg brings together images, some harmonious some discordant, vaguely centered around umbrellas. This potpourri of images is a perfect example of Rauschenberg's aesthetic, technique, and subject matter. Flowers, barren land, lights, nature, and other seemingly random images surround the umbrellas. 

    Umbrellas, along with wheels and fine art reproductions, are a reoccurring motif within Rauschenberg's oeuvre, having also been realized in his sculptures and paintings over the decades.
