Make sure you compiled rxvt with background pixmap support, like so:

./configure --enable-xpm-background
make; make install

Then run rxvt with the -pixmap option, like so:

rxvt -pixmap pixmap.xpm

And if you want to change pixmaps while running rxvt, that can be done, 

echo -e "\033]20;pixmap.xpm\007"
