Last Birds and Flowers-Kurt Schwitters 1946

Kurt Schwitters uses found everyday objects such as labels, letters, tickets, fabric bits and wooden pieces to put his collages together. This piece of art is said to be reflecting British life. I really like the idea of putting these types of found objects together, as they don't all go together, yet they tend to work as a whole, and it makes sense all together. He is now seen as the grandfather of many post-1945 art movements, from pop art to conceptual, installation and performance art.
