ARP, HANS or JEAN


Jean Arp was a painter, a poet and sculptor. He was born on September 16, 1886 in Strasbourg, which is in the area known as Alsace-Lorraine, near the boundary of Germany and France.  His art retained a feeling for life on the border.  He balanced a Gallic playfulness with a romantic mysticism that is essentially German.  (He wrote in both languages).  He longed to escape from the conventional borders of modern life, into a community of the s (showing 500 of 11866 characters).
