Sophie Taeuber-Arp was a quiet innovator whose fame has too often been yoked to that of her husband, Jean Arp. Over time, however, she has slowly come to be seen as one of the foremost abstract artists and designers of the twentieth century. The Swiss-born Taeuber-Arp had a front-row seat to the first wave of Dadaism and was, along with Mondrian and Malevich, a pioneer of Constructivism. Her singular artwork incorporated painting, sculpture, dance, fiber arts, and architecture, as hers was one of the first oeuvres to successfully bridge the divide between fine and functional art. Now Roswitha Mair has brought us the first biography of this unique polymath, illuminating not just Tauber-Arp's own life and work, but also the various milieus and movements in which she traveled. No fan of the Dadaists and their legacy will want to miss this first English-language translation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A biography of Sophie Taeuber is, without question, a necessary project, and Mair answers this need with an engaging and finely crafted book. It will be valuable, not only for historians' reevaluation of Taeuber's career but also for a general appreciation of the complexities and contradictions of the fascinating years in which she lived and worked."--Megan R. Luke, University of Southern California
