Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

in Germany, Schwitters created the first of his grand Merz assemblages, or Merzbau, with the Kathedrale des erotischen Elends ("Cathedral of Erotic Misery")

In his essay 'Ich und meine Ziele' in Merz 21, Schwitters referred to the first column of his work as the Cathedral Of Erotic Misery. There is no evidence that he used this name after 1930, however. The first use of the word 'Merzbau' occurs in 1933.
