An uncommon unique original collage for collectors of this interesting artist. Petersen, an American contemporary artist born in 1945, worked as an assistant to Robert Rauschenberg for 10 years from 1970 to 1980. He is a versatile artist, working in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and collages, but is perhaps best known as a collagist,

(Note: Robert Petersen sometimes signed his collages with his initials only - RP -- leading some dealers to misspell his last name when selling his work. The correct spelling is Petersen.)

Robert Petersen was born in 1943 in the small farm town of Le Mars, Iowa.
Petersen lived and worked closely with Rauschenberg on Captiva Island until 1980.
In 1973, Petersen had his first solo show at Galerie Sonnabend in Paris, France, which was followed by numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide. His work is represented in private and public collections internationally including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, France; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Francois Pinault, Venice, Italy; Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, New York, NY; James Rosenquist, Aripeka, FL; Ileana & Michael Sonnabend, New York, NY; Cy Twombly Foundation, Rome, Italy, and Universal Limited Art Editions, NY.
