About

A Rare and important collaboration by four of the leading artists of pre- and post-WWII French artists. Arp et al, Jean. JEAN ARP - SONIA DELAUNAY - ALBERTO MAGNELLI - SOPHIE TAEUBER-ARP. Published by Aux Nourritures Terrestres, Paris, 1950. Edition of 165 copies, this copy numbered "No 47/J.G.," and signed by the participating artists in pencil, except that Taeuber-Arp's signature is stamped, she having died before the work was completed. Title page, Justification page and ten color lithographs created cooperatively by the participants, each print having been created by two or three of the artists, as shown on the diagram at the top of the Justification page. Printed by Edmond and Jacques Desjobert on Arches paper. Housed in a chemise and slipcase. 16 x 12 inches. OCLC locates only two copies. The plates in Fine condition; the chemise and slipcase with some wear and foxing. These works were done while the four artists were living together in the south of France during WWII, where their informal art colony became known as the "Groupe de Grasse." Taeuber-Arp died in 1943 of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a malfunctioning gas stove while on a visit to Switzerland in 1943. It was only after things returned to normal after the end of the war that the artists undertook to publish this portfolio.
