ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG "FLOWER RE-RUN " LITHO, 1968
Incorporating the physical material of daily life into artwork was a central part of Robert Rauschenberg's practice. In his important early silkscreens, Rauschenberg included newspapers' entire articles, headlines and photos, further expanding the definition of Pop Art in the 1960's.
Rauschenberg's use of newspapers also acknowledged or revived a similar approach employed by the Cubists during the first decades of the 20th century in Paris and beyond.
"Flower Re-Run,” from the Reels (B+C) series, is a perfect example of Rauschenberg's aesthetic, technique and pop-culture inspirations. In the Reels (B+C) series of color lithographs, Rauschenberg appropriated stills from the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde to create the imagery.
With vivid intensity, Robert Rauschenberg streaked this composition of film stills in purple amplifying the metaphor of his work and creating a distinct pop-art aesthetic.
