Artists such as Ed Ruscha, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist and Larry Rivers, share a common theme in their contributions to art history. Their own generational and social landscape became the very template, which many of their prints derived from. Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood, Robert Rauschenberg’s Retroactive 1, James Rosenquest’s F-111, and of course Larry River’s Four Camels all share images of iconic symbols reflecting moments in Americana; moments in history which these four artists recognized as being significant enough to forever document in their own creative processes. The Four R’s explores 12 works on paper which share this common, historical connection.
