Why Robert Rauschenberg erased a de Kooning

It was one of the most controversial moments in fine art since Duchamp exhibited a urinal: Robert Rauschenberg taking a drawing of famous painter Willem de Kooning and erasing it as an act of art. The linked art-icle gives more details, and I found it a good read.
