A pioneer of the Pop Art movement, Robert Rauschenberg gained widespread fame in the 1950s for his "combines," in which he juxtaposed nontraditional materials with paint and canvas, redefining the very notion of museum-quality art. West Elm's collection pays homage to the artist's unique style as well as to his social activism. For its collection, the company selected works created during the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange, a seven-year, ten-country tour in which the artist endeavored to achieve cultural understanding through creativity.
