25 In the same review Greenberg made his own aesthetic interests clear. He advocated a 'bland, balanced, Apollonian art ... ' This classical formulation clearly foreshadows his later espousal of Post-Painterly Abstraction  but it represents the very antithesis of Pollock—the Pollock who once famously talked of being 'in' his paintings. Significantly, though, this impersonal formalism went hand in hand with changes in Greenberg's politics at the end of the 19405. 26 With an almost Utopian belief that capitalism could extend America's newly created 'middle-brow' culture to the masses, Greenberg gradually modified his earlier sense of the avant-garde's oppositional stance in relation to bourgeois culture.
These pictures, usually consisting of several modular whitepainted panels abutted together, reflected a pronounced discomfort with Abstract Expressionist bombast; they were passive receptors, awaiting events rather than prescribing sensations. As markers of an artistic tabula rasa they were not completely unprecedented. The Russian artist Malevich had produced his White on White paintings in 1918 as an outcome of different metaphysical preoccupations. However, Rauschenberg's pictures broke decisively with Modernist assumptions of aesthetic self-containment.
Duchamp's use of oblique bodily metaphor and authorial indeterminacy again provided a model here. But it was to be Jasper Johns who followed it most closely. Metaphors of sexual identity: Jasper Johns Johns's earliest works, which are veritable icons of postwar art, appeared sui generis, the artist having destroyed much of his preceding output. He acquired critical success when the art dealer Leo Castelli, invited by Rauschenberg to their shared studio, bought up his entire production, exhibiting it, before Rauschenberg's, in early 1958.
