Papier collé (French: pasted paper or paper cut outs) is a painting technique and type of collage. With papier collé the artist pastes pieces of flat material (paper, oilcloth, newspaper) into a painting in much in the same way as a collage, except the pasted pieces are objects themselves. Cubist painter Georges Braque, inspired by Pablo Picasso's collage method, invented the technique and first used it in his 1912 painting, Fruit Dish and Glass. Henri Matisse also produced pictures in this style later in his life. Another work that exemplifies this style is Braque's Bottle, Newspaper, Pipe, and Glass.
