OP ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG: THE EARLY 1950S. Walter Hopps. Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 1991. Organized by Menil Collection, Houston. Published in association with Houston Fine Art Press. 240 pp. with 215 ills. (70 col.). 27 x 28 cm. LC 91-25596 ISBN 0940619075 In English.
Explores the highly innovative works produced by Rauschenberg (b. 1925) during the first five years of his career, a period in which the artist experimented with diverse media and styles reflecting his association with the Abstract Expressionists and his interest in assemblage techniques and non-traditional materials. Including monochromatic paintings, numerous boxed assemblages, collages, body prints on blueprint paper and a wide range of other technically and stylistically inventive compositions bearing affinities to later developments in Minimalism, Arte Povera and Conceptual art, the catalogue features reproductions of nearly 150 works; numerous previously unpublished photographs of studio scenes and exhibition views; an introductory text discussing the art world of the late 1940s; and four essays thoroughly chronicling Rauschenberg's activities in New York, at Black Mountain College, and during his travels in Europe and North Africa.
