All the art movements that have appeared since the 1950s were anticipated by Rauschenberg and co, often in collaboration with their composer friend John Cage. Rauschenberg helped to invent conceptual art when he borrowed a drawing by Willem de Kooning and promptly erased it. His 1961 “portrait” of the gallerist Iris Clert is a telegram that simply states: “This is a portrait of Iris Clert if I say so.”
