Bauhaus design was revolutionary for its day. It transformed the way the world looked at design. Bauhaus sought to combine the fine arts with crafts by closing the schism between art and industry.
Collage became an important landmark in the history of Cubism, & revolutionized Modern Art of the 20th century. Pablo Picasso & Georges Braque were among the first to use collage as a method for creating innovative art. They came up with the name “collage” from the French verb “coller” which means “to glue” or “to stick”.
