Selected by the New York Times as one of the Best Art Books of 2021

 
Published to accompany the first retrospective of Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s work in the United States in 40 years, Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Living Abstraction presents a comprehensive survey of this multifaceted innovator’s wide-ranging body of work and establishes unequivocally her place in the pantheon of 20th-century abstract art. Taeuber-Arp’s background in the applied arts and dance, her involvement in the Zurich Dada movement, and her projects for architectural spaces were essential to her development of a uniquely versatile and vibrant abstract vocabulary. Through her artistic output and various professional alliances, Taeuber-Arp consistently challenged the historically constructed boundaries separating fine art from craft and design.
 
This richly illustrated catalogue explores the artist’s interdisciplinary and cross-pollinating approach to abstraction through some four hundred works, including textiles, beadwork, polychrome marionettes, architectural and interior designs, stained-glass windows, works on paper, paintings, and relief sculptures. 352 pp.; 435 illus.
