ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG "SUPPORT" SCREENPRINT, 1973
"Support" is a beautiful example of Robert Rauschenberg's aesthetic...as well as his generosity and social engagement.
If you are familiar with the artist's biography you may know of the numerous contributions he made to various social, political and charitable activities during his lifetime.
"Support" was created a short while after a devastating earthquake in Nicaragua. The proceeds of the sale of the print were given to the Pan American Development Foundation, an organization that provided direct relief to victims of the event.
Today this work can be found in many museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art (NYC) and SFMoMA. The latter has an interesting interpretation of this work, including pointing out that the only visible word in the crossword section of the artwork reads "HELP"
This is a fine example of Rauschenberg's work...and his social activism.
