Mixed Media

Pushing the boundaries of traditional methods, mixed media has redefined art, setting new records at antique auctions. Although vintage mixed media art has existed throughout the ancient period, Pablo Picasso was recognized as the pioneer of this genre. Titled “Still Life collage with a Chair Caning”, he created his first mixed media piece in 1912 using paper, paint, rope, and cloth. During the Cubist era, several artists started to explore the limits of working beyond a canvas. Bidsquare arts auction presents mixed media for sale featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Katherine Bernhardt, James Rosenquist, and more. 

Two & Three Dimensional Antique Mixed Media Artworks

These artists extended their work into two dimensions by adding newspapers and found objects to their artworks and then creating a three-dimension piece. A German Dadaist named Kurt Schwitters crafted mixed media artworks from different mundane items such as buttons, compasses, random printed texts, and ticket stubs. Another intriguing mixed media artist is one of the most recognized 20th-century painters, Henri Matisse. He started working with mixed media in the 1930s using cut and ripped paper, forming collages featuring human figures. Besides, artist Marcel Duchamp's readymades, Dada assemblage, and Cubist collages made major precedence for future generations working as mixed media artists.

The vintage and antique art pieces of mixed media for sale featured in Bidsquare online auctions will extend the viewer’s perception of traditional media. Mixed media art can be produced with a combination of watercolors drawing or acrylic paints, sculptures, rubber-stamped art, and altered books. You can find these variant pieces of vintage and antique mixed media at online auction on Bidsquare crafted by various skilled artists from around the world. Some of the exquisite collections at the auction are of Luis Mazorra, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Marcel Duchamp, to name a few.
