Robert Rauschenberg, Untitled, ca. 1955 (detail)

Research Material
Artwork Detail

This detail of the lower right quadrant of Untitled (ca. 1955) shows a newspaper photo dominated by two shirtless men. The photo appears to have been published on the cover of the New York Daily News, judging from the letters of the masthead that remain visible. The men could perhaps be boxers, as the Daily News has a long history of supporting and reporting on the Golden Gloves boxing championships in New York. In spite of extensive review of issues of the Daily News from the mid-1950s, it has not been possible to identify or date this clipping.
