  • Catalogue Essay

    Rauschenberg always maintained that the world provides him with an endless stream of images. His close friend Jasper Johns generally made prints that are variations on his familiar repertory of images. Rauschenberg's Stunt Man series is one of the few occasions in which Rauschenberg reused imagery in a manner usually associated with his friend: All of the images in Stunt Man II appear in earlier prints; Stunt Man I and III are nearly as cross-referential.
