After the Last Painting...

Robert Rauschenberg was one of the first artists to recognise the possibilities of extending Marcel Duchamp's legacy through painting. This despite Duchamp's insistence that painting was finished following his work "Tu m' " in 1918. Click on Post Title for the historic John Cage lecture given at Los Angeles County Museum in 1965, on Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and Duchamp.
