KURT SCHWITTERS IN BRITAIN

Tate Britain (London, UK) is currently showcasing the work of the German painter Kurt Schwitters, one of the European leaders of the Modernism Movement.

Kurt Schwitters (Hanover, Germany, 1887-Ambleside, UK, 1948) was firstly focused on naturalistic painting and then devoted to Impressionism and after that to Expressionism to finally becoming a major figure in Dadaism.

His artwork is famous for its collages and assemblages, which he called Merz, made from waste materials and objects that he picked up in the streets. In doing so, he became a pioneer in using this kind of technique for creating artwork.

Kurt Schiwitter in Britain exhibition, on display until next 12 May, shows some of the most interesting works of this artist.
