Portrayal of the artist Hans Jean Arp:

Hans Jean Arp was born in 1902 in Strasbourg, son of a French mother and German father, reason that he used both names – the German Hans and the French Jean – all his life switching from one to the other, depending on the circumstances. His name is a synonym for exploring new horizons and innovative art forms, such as collages, papiers déchirés and assemblages. He was at the forefront of several avant-gardes, shifting among different movements, from Cubism to Surrealism. He was among the founders of the Dada group in Zurich and Cologne (1916-1919) together with Tristan Tzara and his future wife, Sophie Taeuber.  After Dadaism, he then joined Surrealism
