Jean Arp Paintings

Jean Arp, a.k.a. Hans Arp (September 16, 1886 – June 7, 1966) was a German-French abstract artist and Dadaist who became known for his paintings, sculptures, and poetry.

When Arp spoke in German, he would refer to himself  as “Hans,” and when he spoke in French, he referred to himself as “Jean”. This was due to him being born in Strasbourg which was located in an area once known as Alsace-Lorraine. The territory of Alsace-Lorraine often shifted between German and French ownership; after World War I French law demanded that Hans change his name to “Jean”.
