Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp was artist in painting, sculpture, textiles, dance, architecture and puppetry, wife of artist Hans (Jean) Arp. Was it possible for a Dada artist to be a Constructivist? Could a Figurative artist be an Abstract artist? These initially irreconcilable approaches coexisted in the work of Sophie Taeuber-Arp, who frequently served as the hinge between two different eras, surrounded by artistic proposals which found in her the logical, productive nexus. For this reason, her name was linked to the key formative moments of the Avant-garde movement.
