Robert Rauschenberg (born 22 October 1925 in Port Arthur, Texas, died May 12, 2008 in Captiva Island, Florida) was a Jewish-American artist. He was featured as one of the most important artists in the United States in the latter half of the 1900s.

Rauschenberg studied at art school Black Mountain College in the United States, under the former Bauhaus profile Josef Albers. Rauschenberg said later that Albers' sense of discipline and methodical approach to art inspired him to do the opposite.

Rauschenberg had great significance for the development of American art in 1950 - and 60-century, and his use of readymades and quotations from popular culture was seen as an alternative to the dominant abstract expressionism, and as a precursor of pop art. Like Jasper Johns' work was Rauschenberg's art referred to as "Neo-Dada" (Dadaism) in the 1950s, due to the mixture of high and low cultural references, and the juxtaposition of different objects, techniques and materials.
