R.I.P. Rauschenberg (1925-2008)

R.I.P. Rauschenberg

American artist Robert Rauschenberg died yesterday at age 82.

Here is a fascinating video of one of his most controversial works, in which he erases a Willem de Kooning drawing. It is really interesting to see his obvious respect for de Kooning’s work and, at the same time, his sense of humor and brilliantly mischievous thought process.

Take a look at the video after the jump.
