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.

Jean Arp original linocut Constellations 1938 XXe Siecle Jean Hans Arp original linocut "Constellations" 1938 1st edition

Medium: original linoleum cut. Printed in 1938 for the art revue XXe Siecle (issue number 4) and published in Paris by San Lazzaro. Size: 12 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches (318 x 248 mm). Not signed.

Condition: there is an ex-library stamp on verso. There are six pinholes along the left edge of the sheet -- this is from the publisher's original binding staples, and also serves to demonstrate the provenance of this piece. Note: a later edition was also issued by XXe Siecle in 1959, but this is the original, first edition. The definitive way to tell is that the original first edition has the pinholes in the margin (glue was used for later issues of XXe Siecle rather than staples). Also, the later edition has a text inscription printed on back; the original has no text on the back.
