Despite a broken hip, a temporarily debilitating stroke, and his battle with alcoholism, Rauschenberg has been hard at work in the years since the first edition of this authorized biography was published in 1990. This revised edition incorporates evaluations and reproductions of his approximately 2,000 new works called "Scenarios"--large, scenic paintings comprising manipulated imagery and expressive brushwork. There are also new anecdotes, new quotes from Rauschenberg himself, and new entries in his already impressive lists of awards, exhibitions, and reviews.

In preparing this book, the author interviewed just about everybody who has been important to Rauschenberg over the course of some six decades. Fresh anecdotes complement those already familiar to Rauschenberg followers, and new contributions from the artist further personalize and update this biography.
With 200 illustrations - 92 in full color - Rauschenberg/Art and Life is an impressive portrait of the artist. In addition to the scores of works of art reproduced (paintings, combines, floor and wall constructions, prints made at U.L.A.E., and more), are personal photographs of Rauschenberg and his friends and family, creating in sum an intimate portrait of this living legend. A special feature of the book are the many reproductions, for the first time, of his most recent and significant work - ROCI (Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange) - a continually evolving body of work developed and exhibited in countries all over the world.
