In the early 1950s. Rauschenberg, along with his friend and lover Jasper Johns, created work that was considered Neo-Dada and foresaw the emergence of Pop Art in his use of commercial and Americana imagery and objects. Rauschenberg was both a painter and a sculptor and the Combines are a combination of both, but he also worked with photographyprintmakingpapermaking, and performance.
