The signature and inscription visible here are usually hidden under a mat board when the photograph is exhibited. Rauschenberg signed the photograph, and his studio assistant Bradley Jeffries added the title, date, and “#2” (indicating that this is the second print of this photograph to be made). Although the photograph is inscribed with a date of 1955, recent research by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation confirms a date of 1958 based on the 1958 date of the Jasper Johns painting Target, which is visible behind Johns in this image. This print was made in 1981.
