Hans Arp

Mondmännchen I
Circa 1960

Pen and India ink on paper with watermark 'VIDALON FRANCE" 27 x 20 cm Framed under glass. Signed 'Arp' lower left. - Overall good condition. The outer margins minimally browned, somewhat less in the upper corner. The oval slightly damaged by the pen in one spot.

The basic design of this sketch is the same as the 1960 engraving "Composition" (cf. Arntz 416, - here probably shown upside down).


We would like to thank Astrid von Asten, Arp Museum Rolandseck, and also Maike Steinkamp, Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp Foudation Remagen-Rolandswerth for their additional information dated 25 March and 2 April 2014.
