Robert Rauschenberg: Combines.

Robert Rauschenberg: Combines. Essays by Paul Schimmel, Thomas Crow, Branden Joseph, Charles F. Stuckey, Jean-Paul Ameline, and an afterword by Pontus Hulten. Steidl & Partners, 2005. 324pp., 65 illustrations, 24.8 cm x 31.1 cm.

I could just kick myself for missing this exhibition at Moderna Museet!
I find Robert Rauschenberg's work wonderful, layered, vibrant and surprisingly beautiful - as well as "the goat" (actual title "monogram") being one of my early, joyous, childhood memories of art...
Luckily I was graciously loaned the catalogue, which has a complete collection of his works of Combines, and it's just as fantastic as I knew it would be!

To read more about Robert Rauschenberg and this book go to this wonderful post/article by Anita Elgerot (Swedish only I'm afraid), to the museum website (English and Swedish) or to the extensive publisher description.
