HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE COLLAGE ARTISTS. The danger with any list is that one is always going to omit a few greats, but if you like this particular art form, pick an artist you like and learn more. Of course, the big three are Kurt Schwitters, Hannah Höch and Joseph Cornell—and you’ll have no problem finding lots of information on this group.

No one is sure who made the first collage...Picasso or Braque.
A collage, "Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?" by Richard Hamilton is often called the first piece of pop art.

I'm honored to be included in such a wonderful group of artists = Just installed a permanent exhibition at the Eventi Hotel at 30th and 6th ave in NYC on the 3rd floor (open to the public) called Chronicles of Beauty. This site is just bare bones so far of the work. Take a look.www.chroniclesofbeauty.net
