Jean Arp - Sculptures
Jean Arp, Sculptures. A Critical Survey focuses on the sculpture of German-French sculptor and poet Jean (or Hans) Arp (1886–1966), one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
The book delivers verifiable scholarly data on the breadth of Jean Arp’s sculptural oeuvre.
For the first time in its history the Arp Foundation has opened up its archives and enabled a reconstruction of posthumous processes around Arp’s sculptures. The Critical Survey is the necessary first step towards the eventual publication of a new catalogue raisonné and answers fundamental questions concerning editions, forgeries and casting rights. It has
been edited by Arie Hartog, Director of the Gerhard-Marcks-Haus in Bremen.
To launch the publication a panel of experts
will discuss the issues raised by the book,
including wider discussions around sculptural production and questions of authentication.
