Robert Rauschenberg 1925 - 2008 “People ask me, “Don’t you ever run out of ideas?” In the first place I don’t use ideas. Every time I have an idea it’s too limiting, and usually turns out to be a disappointment. But I haven’t run out of curiosity.” Robert Rauschenberg, in my opinion the greatest abstract expressionist and the most important painter of the 20th century, died yesterday at the age of 82.
