ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG "TWO REASONS BIRDS SING" SCREENPRINT, 1979

We love the softness and subtlety of this fantastic Rauschenberg screenprint with fabric collage. 

This example from the famed "Suite of Nine Prints" portfolio demonstrates a shift of focus from Rauschenberg. This disparate elements that make up the composition are not immediately apparent or iconic. Their affect is more about shape or form rather than immediate symbolism - there is no JFK American eagle or spaceship here.

Instead we have poetic and mysterious elements including a deep-sea diver, the arm of a record player and sunken treasure or ship's figurehead. 

"Two Reasons Birds Sing" is a lovely example of one of the most fascinating and original American artists of the 20th century.
