Mixed media art uses more than one medium to create the work of art. The use of mixed media in art arose around 1910-1912 with Picasso and Georges Braque using different materials in their cubist collates. An open attitude towards using multiple media for creating art has enabled artist to create fantastic mixed media artworks. We often think of mixed media artworks as photographs that have been painted over or paintings that have included other media such as wood, paper and other elements in their compositions. Robert Rauschenberg in the 1950's employed this type of mixed media approach with his famous "Combines". Often earlier artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Kurt Schwitters, many Bauhaus artists, Joseph Cornell, Hannah Hoech and many others used found objects to incorporate in their works of art. Today many works of art and installations use the mixed media approach where German artists such as Anselm Kiefer come to mind. Yet, let's not forget Joseph Beuys and his mixed media works of art that could also include performance in the artistic end product. Other art forms such as books, collage, decollage, modular art, multimedia and new media art all use multiples materials.
