One of the most celebrated of Rauschenberg’s silkscreen paintings, Retroactive II is full of visual urgency: images of John F. Kennedy (who was assassinated just after Rauschenberg ordered the screen), a parachuting NASA astronaut, and industrial cues such as machine parts all create a sense of immediacy and American power. It is one of around 80 screenprints, Rauschenberg made between the autumn of 1962 and the spring of 1964.
