Fine Art Collage

Kurt Schwitters, "Revolving"

This collage was made by Kurt Schwitters in 1919. It is made out of wood, metal, cord, cardboard, wool, wire, leather, and oil on canvas. The amount of materials he used for this collage intrigued me, and the way he meshed them all together. I also like his use of the cord, wire, and hoops to form lines and shapes. He said the use of worn, or broken things, was to reflect a society that was shattered by World War 1.
