Jean Arp (1886 - 1966)
Jean Arp was born in Strasbourg. From 1905 to 1907, Arp studied at the Kunstschule, Weimar, Germany. In 1908 he attended the Académie Julia in Paris. Arp was a founding member of the Dada movement in Zürich in 1916. In 1920, along with Max Ernst, and the social activist Alfred Grunwald, he set up the Cologne Dada group. However, in 1925 his work also appeared in the first exhibition of the Surrealist group at the Galerie Pierre in Paris. In 1931, he broke with Surrealism to found Abstraction-Creation. In 1950, he executed a relief for the Harvard University Graduate Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts and a mural at the UNESCO building in Paris. In 1954, Arp won the Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale.
