The American Robert Rauschenberg (born 1925), whose trademark sculptures are 'combines' of objects from everyday life, was one of the first artists to incorporate photographic imagery into his prints and paintings through the use of screen-printing and photomechanical techniques. Very often his prints are a montage of photographic imagery overworked with painterly textures created through broad brush strokes of ink. His work is not only about, but literally made with, contemporary culture, in this case photograhic images taken from mass-produced magazines and other sources. He was one of the most influential and inventive artists of his era.
