On view

Arp spent most of his life in France and Switzerland where he was an active member of the Dada and Surrealist groups. During and after World War I, he achieved success as a sculptor, printmaker and poet. He began to make freestanding sculpture in the 1930s. While his lyrical forms come close to total abstraction, they always symbolize some aspect of nature.
