Item Description: Universal Limited Art Editions, West Islip, NY, 1978. Rauschenberg, Robert (illustrator). First edition. Portfolio with 36 lithographs by Rauschenberg and text by Robbe-Grillet. Printed on specially made Twinrocker paper, with the watermark of the artist's and author's signatures, it comprises 31 pages plus the title page and 4 colophon pages, printed from 37 stones and 27 aluminum plates, numbered [1],1-31, I-IV. 20-1/2 x 26 3/16 inches (52 x 69 cm.) folded. Copy 34 of a total edition of 36, plus 6 A.P. copies (the colophon calls for six, but they are numbered through 7). Signed and dated by Rauschenberg and signed and numbered by Robbe-Grillet on each of the 31 pages, each carries the embossed folio number and publisher's seal. Fine condition in original red cloth clamshell box, designed by the artist, as issued. With two of the original aluminum offset plates on which Robbe-Grillet wrote the text, a set of ten proof pages for the text before illustrations, and a sheet which Robbe-Grillet used for practice, before writing out the manuscript. "Long enamored of French literature and language, Tatyana Grosman attended a lecture by Alain Robbe-Grillet in April 1972. When the writer mentioned Robert Rauschenberg's work, Mrs. Grosman, already aware of stylistic similarities between the two, felt that a collaboration was fated. Two days later, it was underway. During the next four years, Mrs. Grosman sent offset plates to Paris and proofed and translated Robbe-Grillet's text in West Islip; Rauschenberg added images one chapter at a time. The completed pages were sent back to Robbe-Grillet with plates for the next chapter. It soon became clear that Robbe-Grillet was not working in the spirit of sympathetic collaboration but providing a massive text that presented great problems in page design. Rauschenberg responded with images that are much more aloof than in previous books yet responsive to the elegance of the text," Esther Sparks, Universal Limited Art Editions, pp. 447-459. "The title is police jargon, loosely meaning that things are not as they seem.To Robbe-Grillet's mysterious story of lost romance and murder in the city, Rauschenberg responded with a portrayal of everyday life, with supermarkets, underwear, and bicycles. Mrs Grosman saw both contributions as equally nostalgic and sad. 'The effect was a Last Year at Marienbad quality,' she said," Mary Lynn Kotz, Rauschenberg / Art and Life, (1990), p. 148.

The overall is size of the Mixed Media is 32 x 26.25 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Mixed Media: Irrepressibly prolific, Robert Rauschenberg shaped 20th Century and postwar American Art. Dubbed a Neo-Dadaist, Rauschenberg created silk screens, sculptures, digital images and set designs as well as revolutionary three dimensional combines which fused paint with items collected from the street. Rauschenberg’s works on paper includes examples of his experimental methodology of collaging with prints and photographs. The artist introduced an innovative level of technology and new materials as he pushed the limits of what was thought possible in printmaking at the time. This serigraph is signed, numbered, and dated by Robert Rauschenberg, and created with fabric and photo collage on hand-cut paper. Apart from the edition of 75, there were also 15 Artist’s Proofs.(Please note that the print is not a complete rectangle.). Signed. Poster. Bookseller Inventory # YY7066-B

Item Description: Abrams, New York, 1969. Book-object designed by RR, including his text/photo superimpositions making both equivalently "hard to read". Used to be a £1,500 item in the 1980’s, then became a barely £500 item, split the difference. As this is being written, news of RR’s death. His early paintings and the fantastic immense Barge as well as the wonderful post-dada silkscreens on canvas from the 60’s still exhilarating at times, recalled with a friend perchance three months ago at the Empire Diner (food still inedible, only water) in New York, two weeks prior to RR’s death – so the recollection of his work isn’t sentimentally sudden.

An austerely elegant production by Robert Rauschenberg and The Sonnabend Gallery: Oversize-volume format. Pale gray hard boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs and Introduction by Robert Rauschenberg. Preface by Pontus Hulten. Interview with the artist by Alain Sayag. List of Plates appended at the end. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Paris, France to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Originally published on the occasion of the exhibition, "Rauschenberg Photographe", held at the Musee National d'Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou in 1981. Presents Robert Rauschenberg's "Photographs". The artist's photographic work in its very first retrospective. One of the least well-known facts about Rauschenberg is that he began his career as a photographer. Furthermore, he makes no distinction between his photography and his painting. He has said that he brings the same pair of eyes to both. The photographs, like the paintings, are rigorous, acute, and sensuous. His celebrated method of appropriating "found" images and objects to capture the fabric, tempo, and "feel" of modern life is photographically-inspired and characterizes his large body of work. The idea of appropriation is not unique to Rauschenberg. It is a central tenet of Surrealism, and continues to be the latter Movement's enduring legacy. What makes Rauschenberg's work unique is the way he has "set in motion an interplay of shapes in which the human form is integrated to a rigorous yet flamboyant sense of design, pictures in which art and real life coincide" (Pontus Hulten). The photographs are presented in two parts: The first is the Series taken between 1945 and 1946, in such places as Tangiers, Rome, New York, and North Carolina. The second consists of photographs taken between 1979 and 1980, in Captiva Island (where he lived) as well as Boston, Atlantic City, Baltimore, and Charleston. "A protean genius who showed America that all of life could be open to art. Rauschenberg didn't give a fig for consistency or curating his reputation; his taste was always facile, omnivorous, and hit-or-miss, yet he had a big-ness of soul and a richness of temperament that recalled Walt Whitman" (Robert Hughes). "Mine is the need to be where it will always never be the same again. Photography is the most direct communication of non-violent contacts" (Robert Rauschenberg). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Rauschenberg collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Robert Rauschenberg. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature brilliantly matches his facsimile signature on the DJ cover. This title is a great art photography book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Unlike most copies available online, it is not remainder-marked, all of the internal pages are in pristine condition, and the boards are not bumped. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990's. Signed copies still available online are vintage, not recent, and very few. A rare signed copy thus. 122 duotone plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0394520548.

One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Softcover Edition. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Robert Rauschenberg: Oversize-volume format. White linen cloth boards with metallic-silver titles beautifully embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Rauschenberg. Essay by Colta Ives. Matching white linen cloth slipcase. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Robert Rauschenberg's "Photos In + Out City Limits: New York". The great artist's collection of black-and-white photographs on New York City, it is the partial fulfillment of his 30-year-old wish to photograph the entire United States, a project he never completed. Showcases his unique approach to photography as a process of discovery, selection, and assemblage of objects from everyday life. One of the least well-known facts about Rauschenberg is that he began his career as a photographer. He makes no distinction between his photography and his painting, and he brings the same acute eye to both. The photographs, like the paintings, are formally rigorous, sensuous, and piercing. His celebrated method of appropriating found images and objects to capture the fabric, tempo, and "feel" of modern life is photographically-inspired and characterizes his large body of work. The idea of appropriation is not unique to Rauschenberg. It is a central tenet of Surrealism and continues to be the latter Movement's enduring legacy.

This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws because the color white soils very easily. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990's.

New in Near Fine dust jacket (1/8-inch closed tear at the top of the front fold, else Fine). From the publisher: "Organized by Chief Curator Paul Schimmel, Robert Rauschenberg: Combines focuses on the Combines created roughly between 1954 and 1964, the most important decade in the artist's 50-year career. The most complete survey of these works ever mounted, the exhibition featured close to eighty key works drawn from major collections. Poetic and lush, the Combines present layers of complex and sometimes conflicting information. This prescient approach has become increasingly relevant in the current age of cascading information, when even the most groundbreaking artists are referencing and sampling disparate elements to create new forms. The Combines suggest the fragility of definitions, the fluidity of materials, and the complexity of forms that is characteristic of Rauschenberg's works. The artist's handling of materials provides a precise physical evolutionary link between the painterliness of Abstract Expressionism and iconographical, subject-driven qualities of early Pop Art. The book constitutes the most complete survey of the Combines ever presented, as well as the most rigorous analysis of their political, social, autobiographical, and aesthetic significance."
