Let us Now Praise Famous Men (Rauschenberg Family) and detail, 1962, silkscreen-ink print on canvas. 

Andy Warhol, 1928-1987, American.  National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC on loan in 2017 to MOMA, NY

 

The museum notes that Andy Warhol asked Rauschenberg if he could make a portrait of him.  This is the result made from one of several phtographs dating from the 1920s and 30s of members of Rauschenberg’s family in Port Arthur, Texas. 

Warhol’s title comes from a celebrated 1941 book of photos of the Depression in the south of the US of James Agee and Walker Evans.  Rauschenberg was not famous in 1968 and the title is taken as expressing Warhol’s regard for him.
