Rauschenberg was one of the first artists to combine elements high and low art in his work, challenging the cultural hierarchy implied by such terms. For Rauschenberg, everyday life was just as interesting and complex as traditional ‘high’ art and in Persimmon, he blends a contemporary New York street scene and various everyday objects with a reproduction of Venus in front of the Mirror by Peter Paul Rubens.
