Jean Hans Arp Art

Jean Arp (1886 – 1966) sculpted, painted, wrote poetry and created abstract art – a well-rounded and skilled German-French artist. Born Jean Arp to a French mother and German father, Arp referred to himself when speaking in German as "Hans." Jean Arp moved back and forth between Germany and France during his art studies, and even escaped to neutral Switzerland during World War I.

In Switzerland, Jean “Hans” Arp, Max Ernst and Alfred Grunwald founded the Dada movement, which promoted anti-war politics through visual arts, literature and graphic design. Through his art, Arp, Marcel Duchamp and other Dadaism founders were able to reject the modern norms of art and show their disdain for the war.
