From the Guggenheim's web site: In 1997, the Guggenheim Museum organized Robert Rauschenberg: A Retrospective, the most comprehensive exhibition of the artistıs work ever assembled. It featured nearly 300 works, including several of his newly-created Anagrams paintings from the mid- to late 90s that used digital photography transferred via vegetable dyes, exemplifying his inventive and ever-evolving approach to art and his embrace of new technologies and materials. The exhibition opened to universal acclaim and traveled to museums around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The 632-page catalogue is now a collectorıs item.
