Sophie Taeuber-Arp
Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943) was one of the most important geometric abstractionists of the last century and the only woman currently depicted on a Swiss banknote. Our selection of images below focusses on Taeuber-Arp's work as a painter, but she was also a sculptor, designer and performer and was closely involved in many Dada projects in Zurich. Taeuber-Arp died of carbon monoxide poisoning a few days before her 54th birthday.

Other artists who died in 1943 and whose work is now out of artistic copyright include Camille Claudel, Maurice Denis and Chaïm Soutine.
