Robert Rauschenberg - Beamers

January 30 - March 2, 2002

Original show text:


For the first time ever in a private gallery exhibition the "Beamer" series of paintings by Robert Rauschenberg will be reunited with the BMW 635 "art car" he created for BMW in 1986. These artworks sample many of the images used on the car, including representations of paintings by Old Masters like Bronzino's "Man of the World," 1535 and "The Grand Odalisque" by Ingres. The artist combined these images with his own phtograpsh to create a montage of nature and culture. These one-of-a-kind paintings will be offered for sale from the artist's private collection.
