This original, rare exhibition poster was designed by Robert Rauschenberg and published by the Jewish Museum for his first retrospective exhibition in 1963. The seminal museum show was one year before Rauschenberg became the first American to receive the International Grand Prize in Painting at the Venice Biennale and included the following groundbreaking artworks: Bed (1955), Wager (1957–59), Canyon (1959), Curfew (1958), Allegory (1959–60), Empire I (1961), Pilgrim (1960), Winter Pool (1959), Double Feature (1959), and Monogram (1955–59). Due to the art historical significance of this show, this poster has been included in the collections of The Library of Congress, and The Metropolitan Museum.
Robert Rauschenberg (b. 1925—d. 2008, Port Arthur, Texas) was an American painter and sculptor. His influential career changed the landscape of American painting and art-making in the 20th century.
