This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Jean (Hans) Arp modeled this series of twelve lithographs after previous works in order to revisit his earlier compositions. He did this often, sometimes also exploring an image in sculptural form. The images in this album eloquently retain the details of the originals, further exemplifying that, for Arp, the simplest and most comprehensible means of visual expression center on line, area, form, and color.
