Papier collé (French: pasted paper) is a painting technique and type of collage. With papier collé the artist pastes pieces of flat material (paper, oil and cloth?) into a painting in much in the same way as a collage, except the shape of 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, Fruitdish and Glass. Henri Matisse also sometimes produced pictures in this style.
