about

• There are no other books available on this important subject• This is the only book that looks closely not only at recent times but also at the early centuries of collage• Collage is popular, fascinating and historically revealing• Accompanies an exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh from June to October 2019Collage is one of the most popular and pervasive of all art-forms, yet this is the first historical survey book ever published on the subject.

Hitherto, 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. In Cut and Paste: 400 Years of Collage, we trace its origins back to books and prints of the 1500s, through 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 is used by millions of us through digital devices. The definition of collage employed 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.
