Robert Rauschenberg 1926 - 2008

Anyone who has seen Robert Rauschenberg’s Bed would understand what a shock it must have when first exhibited in 1955 (3 years before McCahon painted the Northland panels). In some ways his reputation has been clouded by the reception to his later work. For us he was an eye opener. Proof that beauty can be found anywhere. A good thing to know. We’re sad to announce that Robert Rauchenberg died on Monday at the age of 82.
