Collage for 'Patio and Pavilion'

Nigel Henderson.Collage for 'Patio and Pavilion' (the growth of plant forms)
1956. Printed and painted paper on wood.

I choose this collage because while there are still many elements it is somewhat simpler than many other collages. There are only a few colors being used and while they are made up of many interesting things there are only a few “flowers”. The parts that make up the flowers are interesting; they all seem to give the illusion of a different texture. After doing more research about this collage and the artist, I found that in 1938, Henderson exhibited several of his collages at the Guggenheim Jeune alongside many other artists including Picasso, although I am not sure if this was one of them.
