Item description for Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Designer, Dancer, Architect by Eva Afuhs...

Swiss-born artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889--1943) ranks among the pioneers of the classical avant-garde in the first half of the twentieth century. The work of this remarkably versatile and gifted artist covers the universal range of the modernist movement, from applied and fine art to dance and architecture, from interior design to teaching. This richly illustrated volume chronicles Taeuber-Arp's multifaceted career---with an emphasis on her design and architectural oeuvre.
Featuring rarely seen architectural drawings and furniture designs, Sophie Taeuber-Arp traces the artist's life from her beginnings as a dance student of Rudolf von Laban and her involvement in the Dada movement in Zurich to her marriage to Frenchsculptor Jean Arp and her subsequent association with the Swiss Werkbund, to her eventual flight from the Nazis in France and return to Switzerland. Essays by prominent curators and art historians place Taeuber-Arp's career in context, making this the definitive book on an extraordinary modernist figure.
