Une mesure d’un conte de fée, ca. 1926

The fact that decorative arts techniques were not exclusively used by women artists at the beginning of the 20th century can be seen in numerous textile designs based on the drafts of Jean Arp. As early as 1915, he exhibited broderies on an equal level with his other works, a concept that he would maintain especially in the context of Dadaism, but also for years after that. Analogous to the process of making his reliefs, which he commissions from a carpenter, Arp left the execution of his textile designs among others to colleagues of Sophie Taeuber at the academy of applied arts, Zurich.
