Four Monoprints by Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, 1949-51

Another favourite artist, Robert Rauschenberg, was born on this day in 1925. These monoprints made in collaboration with Susan Weil were created using photosensitive blueprint paper. They seem to anticipate the Anthropométries of Yves Klein that would later invert their technique and colour values rather neatly.
