having seen his retrospective years ago, i can not recommend it more. please take advantage of this special moment in time. m.

Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) is America’s Leonardo – ceaselessly inventive, a mind in perpetual revolution. That is the revelation of this exhilarating show. If all you knew of him was the famous goat girdled in a tyre, or the collages of JFK raising a warning finger, then think again. Rauschenberg changed artists’ ideas of what painting, sculpture and even drawing might be. He turns out to be the fons et origo of 60 years and more of art, Warhol to Hirst.

Robert Rauschenberg is at Tate Modern, London until 2 April
