Collage by Francis Picabia and Pablo Picasso




















Right: Pablo Picasso, Bottle of Vieux Marc, Glass, Guitar and Newspaper, 1913, collage and pen and ink on blue paper.
Left: Francis Picabia, L'Oeil Cacodylate, 1921, oil on canvas, with collaged photographs, postcards and other papers.

Collage became very known lately and there are even some sites online  where after choosing some images it's possible to create one.
 The technique was first used in art by Francis Picabia one of the most important members of the Dada movement - notice the name "Tristan Tzara" one of the founders of Dada, at the bottom-right of his collage.

At this site there are some other artists that used this medium and a good explanation of the technique.
"Collage" was originally a French word, derived from the word coller, meaning "to paste."

Nice it looks pretty cool and Very useful information you have there.

I am a student from Leicester College and doing Btec Level 3 Art and Design (in my first year of a two year course).

Thank you for making this :)

Wow! I envy you!
I'm glad you liked. I give the "hints" and try to make people be curious about art.
I don't put too much information. I just want that people get enchanted by things they don't know and, if possible, give something to remember.
Hope you enjoy College. This is the best period of life.
