This section is dedicated to the basic proposition that Collage, far from being an activity associated with the avant-garde, was a parlour pastime engaged in by ordinary people as a matter of course. See Aaron Scharf, Art and Photography.

Avant-garde collage should be re-assessed in this light, aligning the artist with popular practice.
