Wishing all the best of everything beautiful, delicious, and good-smelling to you. ~ TMLipp
Jean Arp (or the name he used in German, Hans Arp) (16 September 1886 – 7 June 1966) was a German-French sculptor, painter, poet, and abstract artist in other media such as torn and pasted paper. He was also the husband of the artist, painter, sculptor, textile designer, and dancer, Sophie Tauber-Arp.
Arp was a founding member of the Dada movement in Zürich in 1916. In 1920, as Hans Arp, along with Max Ernst and the social activist Alfred Grünwald, he set up the Cologne Dada group. However, in 1925, his work also appeared in the first exhibition of the surrealist group at the Galérie Pierre in Paris.
