Much of Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s work is characterized by a severity and symmetry of color and design. As an active participant in the Zurich Dada movement of the late 1910s, she broke with traditions that privileged painting over other art forms, producing collages, embroideries, and weavings in predominantly abstract styles. By the 1930s—then living in Paris with her husband, artist Jean Arp—she became increasingly dedicated to pure abstraction. Point on Point, made during that period, demonstrates the geometric composition and reduced, primary palette that together show the influence of De Stijl artists Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian.
