Given name Milton Ernst Rauschenberg, Robert Rauschenberg was born in Texas in 1925. Rauschenberg was an American painter who transitioned from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. He studied at Kansas City Art Institute and Academie Julien in Paris. Rauschenberg was well known for his “Combines” in the 1950s which displayed both his ability to paint and to sculpt. Along with using found objects, the artist began using found images in his work in the 1960s by way of the silkscreening process. He was quoted as trying to find “the gap between art and life.” Rauschenberg won a Grammy for the album art he designed for a group called the Talking Heads. In 2008, Rauschenberg passed away due to heart failure.
