Rauschenberg embraced the aesthetic and technical possibilities of lithography and other forms of printmaking, and worked extensively with both ULAE and Gemini G.E.L. He designed this poster to support the successful reelection campaign of Jacob Javits, the liberal Republican senator from New York. In the same year, Rauschenberg and Marion Javits, the senator’s wife,founded Broadside Art, Inc., a short-lived venture that aimed to make grand-scale printmaking available to artists




Keywords

Click a term to view other artwork with the same keyword

Contemporary
Period and styles of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, and architecture dating from the recent past and present. It differs from modern art in that the term 'Contemporary art' does not carry the implication of a non-traditional style, but instead refers only to the time period in which the work was created. 'Modern' and 'Contemporary' are inherently fluid terms. The term 'Contemporary' is sometimes more narrowly used to refer to art from ca. 1960 or 1970 up to the present. To refer to the current time period without reference to style of art, use "contemporary (generic time frame)".
prints
Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
cityscapes
Refers to creative works that depict settlements that may be considered cities, which are large or important communities with population, status, and internal complexity greater than most towns in the region. For creative works depicting towns, use "townscapes (representations)."
