The Artist

Kurt Schwitters

German artist Kurt Schwitters was born in Hanover in 1887. He studied art at the Dresden Academy, alongside fellow students George Grosz and Otto Dix. In 1909, Schwitter returned to his hometown of Hanover to begin his art career as a post-impressionist. His first exhibition took place in 1911 in Hanover. Schwitters experimented in a wide variety of media and disciplines throughout his career, including constructivism, surrealism, dadaism, typography, painting, sound, poetry and sculpture. His most famous artworks were his series of collages, called the Merz Pictures, created from rubbish he had found on the streets and printed media, creating harmonious and sentimental arrangements.
