rauschenberg poetry

Being an artist:

Rauschenberg erased De Kooning.  The artwork became a classic almost instantly. 

I've always been struck with the simplicity and elegance of this artwork.  Period.  

When I listen to Rauschenberg tell how the work came about, I appreciate even more the strange competitive dynamic between many artists, even among the 'Masters'.  I love that Rauschenberg talked plainly of it and dealt with it for himself head on.

Hear him tell the story in the video below.
