Robert Rauschenberg

04 May, 2007

Robert Rauschenberg is the latest artist to create a limited-edition bottle design for Taittinger Champagne.

The Rauschenberg bottle, filled with the 2000 vintage, is released this month and is expected to retail for £145.

Rauschenberg is the eleventh artist to be commissioned by Taittinger since Claude Taittinger came up with the idea in 1981. Previous artists include André Masson and Roy Lichtenstein.
