Kurt Schwitters

* Kurt Schwitters, source of artist quotes on Dada Art & life: ‘Merz Painting’ (1919); as quoted in “I is Style”, ed. Siegfried Gohr & Gunda Luyken, commissioned by Rudi Fuchs, director of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, NAI Publishers, Rotterdam 2000, p. 91 (Dadaist German painter, poet and sculptor, famous for his Merz art, Merzbau, Ursonate;)
