Among works on show is a selection of his iconic Combines, hybrids between painting and sculpture, which include Monogram 1955-59, and Bed 1955. Tate Modern is also showing the signature silkscreen paintings that signalled Rauschenberg’s attempt to bring politics, mass media imagery and street scenes into his work, including Retroactive II 1964, which portrays John F. Kennedy, who had recently been assassinated.
