Sophie Taeuber-Arp was a painter, sculptor, designer, and active member in the Zurich and Paris Dada movements and a multitude of other avant-garde art circles. She also danced and famously designed sets for Dada performances. Taeuber-Arp’s training in textile design came to inform her abstract paintings, which also bore the influence of Cubism. Some of her most iconic work is recognized for its austere geometric motifs, minimal aesthetic, and expression of her belief in the expressive power of form, line, and palette. She also produced more figural work in the mid-1930s, including a series of polychrome wooden heads and reliefs. Taeuber-Arp was married to Jean Arp, with whom she often collaborated.
