Description

Collage is one of the most popular and pervasive of all art forms, and yet this is the first historical survey book ever published on the subject.

Featuring nearly 200 works, ranging from the 1500s to the present day, it offers an entirely new approach. In the past, collage has been presented as a twentieth-century phenomenon, linked in particular to Pablo Picasso and Cubism in the years just before the First World War. Here, the story of collage is traced back to book and prints of the 1500s, on to the boom in popularity of scrapbooks and do-it-yourself collage during the Victorian period, and then through Cubism, Futurism, Dada and Surrealism.

Collage became the technique of choice in the 1960s and 1970s for anti-establishment protest and, in the present day, it is used by millions of us through digital devices. The definition of collage here is a broad one, encompassing cut-and-pasted paper, photography, patchwork, film and digital technology and ranging from work by professionals to unknown makers, amateurs and children.
