#STPIPickOfTheDay | Robert Rauschenberg, Booster (1967) stands tall as the exemplary work that convinced Robert of the medium’s worthwhile ability to rival painting and sculpture in scale and visual complexity. Booster was significant for combining multiple methods on a single print, breaking strict delineations between techniques to bind disparate materials on a surface. Personal and impersonal, the image could spell self-portrait or a snapshot of history, embodying themes of space exploration, technology, and the man-made.
