Arp: Pro-Art Dada

Rosenberg, Harold
June 1969
New Yorker;6/21/1969, Vol. 45 Issue 18, p91
The article features Jean Arp and his works of art. He is said to be one of the original Cabaret Voltaire founders of Dada. However, his work resembles few of the qualities associated with Dadaism. Arp's images is related with nature, on dreaming, and the everyday subjects. He does not seem connected with the Dada that has defined itself historically by its anti-social and anti-art gestures.
