The Chihiro Art Museum Collection: Paste! Picture Books Featuring Collage
Collage, an artistic technique in which various materials are pasted on a surface to create a composition, is one method of expression that is sometimes employed in picture books. Different artists make use of different materials. Eric Carle uses thin hand-colored paper, while Claudia Legnazzi uses various items, such as grains, leaves and packing materials. We hope that you will enjoy the varied artistic expressions made possible through collage’s interweaving of diverse textures.
