About the Author

Brandon Taylor is currently Professor at Southampton Solent University. His previous books include Art of Today, Avant-Garde and After and Art of the Soviets.


In this comprehensive new work, Taylor (history of art, Univ. of Southampton, U.K.), who has written on Russian art (Art and Literature Under the Bolsheviks) and contemporary art (Art Today), expertly chronicles the history of collage as an art form, beginning with a 1908 work by Picasso titled The Dream (not strictly a collage, but which used a found object "in a manner that was substantially new in art") and ending with digital and computer collage of the 21st century. He critically examines works by Picasso, Braque, Arp, Max Ernst, Mir?, Motherwell, Pollock, Raushenberg, and many other artists, placing collage in the context of an array of modern art movements-among them Constructivism, Dada, Surrealism, Modernism, and Post-Modernism-as well as its social, cultural, and political milieus. A masterful and lavishly illustrated landmark survey-the first to cover the history of collage in this much depth-this is highly recommended for all art collections.-Marcia Welsh, Dartmouth Coll., Hanover, NH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

'Sumptuous ... erudite but never over-scholarly ... a hugely enjoyable trip' - What's On In London
'The fullest and best-written history of the subject so far. It covers a vast amount of ground and reproduces many unfamiliar works ... excellent' - Frank Whitford, The World of Interiors
