Additional Information

Sophie Taeuber-Arp used many mediums to explore her work. A skilled embroiderer and textile artist, beginning in 1915 she made a series of works titled Vertical-Horizontal Composition, in which she sought to bring the grid-like structure of embroidery to 2D art forms. This piece is a natural extension of the exploration – the same bold, abstract pattern used in her drawings and paintings, artfully embroidered in wool on canvas.

Please note that 80 x 60 cm is the largest size option available for this print.

Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889–1943) was an artist but also a dancer, designer, puppet maker, architect and editor. A true pioneer of modern art, she became a teacher after studying art and dance and later taught others how to design patterns for textiles. She ‘lived abstraction’, and became one of the most important concrete and geometric abstract artists. Responsible for co-founding the dada art movement, Tauber-Arp’s way with colours and shapes unlocked new possibilities in art, costume and interior design.
