Charlene, created in 1954, is one of the artist’s most celebrated pieces. A mixture of painting and found objects, it is among Rauschenberg’s earliest ‘Combines’ – a term he used to describe his technique of incorporating everyday items into vast three dimensional compositions. When it was first exhibited in December 1954 in New York, its raw, enigmatic energy shook the art world.
