Persimmon

This painting is by Robert Rauschenberg and I saw it in the Art Institute of Chicago. I thought this painting is interesting because it incorporates a variety of different tools and aspects of art. The background looks modern and like a photograph, while the woman looks like a figure from a painting of the Renaissance. I also really like the bright colors that frame the figure and add somewhat of a light-heartedness to the work.
