Sophie Taeuber-Arp, one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century, developed her own personal style in painting, sculpture, textiles, architecture and interior design. Her clear, non-figurative works focus on the total harmony of form and colour, rhythm and balance and consistently reflect the spirit of Concrete Art. Taeuber-Arp, who showed her work in a great number of exhibitions, was a member of international art associations as well as a teacher of textile design. She also performed as a dancer, and is the only woman to be represented on a Swiss banknote: the 50-franc note.
This catalogue presents the work of the artist in a joint exhibition for the first time in the town of her birth in the Kirchner Museum Davos and in the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck and is a comprehensive homage to the founder of the museum.
