Kurt Schwitters
1887-1948

German artist Kurt Schwitters had already toyed with and discarded several methods of painting when, at the age of 23, he turned to what he called "Merz" -- artwork that combined both found and created objects. A card-carrying member of the Dada movement, Schwitters produced collages that somehow seem more inviting than many of the abstract pieces of his peers.
