Etymology: Borrowed from collage
Collage (, from the French: coller, "to glue" or "to stick together";) is a technique of art creation, primarily used in the visual arts, but in music too, by which art results from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. (Compare with pastiche, which is a "pasting" together.) A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippings, ribbons, paint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty. The term Papier collé was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.
A collage is a piece of art created by assembling various types of materials, often different kinds of paper and photographs, onto a surface. These different materials typically form a new picture or visual outcome that may convey a different theme or narrative. It can be a combination of both physical materials or digitized images in digital art. The term is derived from the French word "coller" meaning "to glue."
