Jean Hans Arp - German French 1886-1966 - Modern Art Abstract Etching on high quality paper. 17" x 19.50" Framed. Provenance: From a New York Art Collection. Purchased from PBS Television Channel 13 Thirteen Fund Raising Auction. From 1905 to 1907, Arp studied at the Kunstschule in Weimar, Germany, and in 1908 went back to Paris, where he attended the Académie Julian. Arp was a founder-member of the Moderne Bund in Lucerne, participating in their exhibitions from 1911 to 1913. He took part in a major exhibition in Zürich, along with Henri Matisse, Robert Delaunay and Kandinsky. Arp had a solo exhibition in New York City at the Buchholz Gallery in 1949. He was commissioned to do reliefs for Harvard University and the UNESCO building in Paris. A Retrospective of Arp's work was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, followed by an exhibition at the Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris, France, in 1962. Organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Wurttembergischer Kunstverein of Stuttgart, a 150-piece exhibition titled "The Universe of Jean Arp" concluded an international six-city tour at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1986. Musée d'art moderne et contemporain of Strasbourg houses many of his paintings and sculptures.
