Additional Information

In the 1930s, Sophie Taeuber-Arp explored primary colours and abstract forms, creating geometric compositions of rectangles and circles, such as this piece. During this time, Taeuber-Arp was part of the Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square) group of artists, who formed in opposition to the Surrealist movement, exploring Zurich-dadaism through geometry. As well as her oil on canvas pieces, she also translated her ideas into a series of painted, turned-wood reliefs.

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.
