Sophie Taeuber-Arp

Taueber-Arp helped start the small but influential Zurich Dada. It gave her the impetus for a diverse career of sustained creativity. A “great artistic polymath”, her work spanned painting, sculpture, textiles and interior design. Despite an early death and the eclectic nature of her output she is recognised, along with Kandinsky and Malevich, as one of the great geometric abstractionists. A short bio piece is here.
