At only 64 pages, this catalog is small but the story it tells is huge: it documents the thirty-plus years that Robert Rauschenberg created prints and multiples at Gemini G.E.L., the world-famous print house in Los Angeles. From 1967 through 2001, working with Gemini owners Sidney Felsen and Stanley Grinstein, Rauschenberg pushed the boundaries of printmaking like no other contemporary artist before or since. All of Rauschenberg’s most celebrated Gemini G.E.L. prints, print series and multiples – such as Booster, the artist’s famous X-ray self-portrait – are illustrated in this essential volume. Also included are prints using his photographs of Los Angeles, multiples created in France, India, China, and from his travels with the Rauschenberg Overseas Cultural Interchange, as well as works created for political or environmental causes including the first Earth Day in 1970. In addition, photographs of the artist working at Gemini are reproduced. Includes an extensive essay by curator Jay Belloli.
