Caviar20 has a strong interest in sculptors who are simultaneously active printmakers. We believe that prints are an accessible introduction to an artist's three-dimensional world. 

Jean Arp (1886-1966), also known as Hans, is an impressive contributor to the avant-garde of the 20th century. During the key years leading up to and defining European Modernism, Jean Arp was there.

While this isn't the platform to effectively cover his biography, Arp worked in numerous European cities at key moments when artistic movements were being defined.

However it is his association with both Dada and Surrealism, from the end of World War 1 until the 1930's that he is best known for. As one begins to explore his oeuvre, it is remarkable how he is also one of the earliest artists to embrace abstraction. 

Caviar20 recommends exploring MoMA's large holding of his work to see how early and radically he was exploring abstraction.

"Composition 1" is a paradigm of Arp's minimalist amoeba-like designs executed in dynamic, timeless and chic palette.
