New York and Florida may have been the abstract painter’s primary stomping grounds, but Los Angeles exerted indelible influence over Rauschenberg’s creative output. From his 1970s partnerships with L.A. print workshops like Styria Studio to his latter-day series “In + Out City Limits” (1979–81) and “LA Uncovered” (1998), the works gathered here highlight how the artist sought and found inspiration in and about the city.
