About the work

Like his famed "Combines" of the 1950s – a signature fusion of painting and sculpture that incorporated objects from everyday life both into and outside of the canvas – Rauschenberg’s prints mix remarkably painterly gestures with his own photography and found images clipped from newspapers and magazines. 5:29 Bay Shore contains images of a Long Island Rail Road locomotive and tracks, a pair of ducks, and other photographs of residential and civic infrastructure that Rauschenberg made in and around Bay Shore, New York, where the print’s storied publisher, Universal Limited Art Editions, is located.

About Robert Rauschenberg

A relentless artistic innovator over the span of six decades, Robert Rauschenberg (b. 1925, Port Arthur, Texas; d. 2008, Captiva, Florida) was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. He worked in a wide range of mediums including painting, sculpture, prints, photography, and performance. In collaboration with talented printers across his career, Rauschenberg pushed printmaking into new territories: challenging the limits of traditional methods by rethinking established approaches to lithography, screenprint, and intaglio; printing on unconventional materials; and eagerly embracing the early possibilities of digital imaging.

Rauschenberg has been the subject of numerous museum retrospectives across the world, including the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1968); Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC (1976); The Menil Collection, Houston (1991); The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (1991); The Guggenheim Museum, New York (1997); Tate Modern, London (2016); and The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2017). He received the International Grand Prize in Painting at the 32nd Venice Biennale in 1964 (the first American artist ever to receive this prize) and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1993.
