a centre of reference

and studies on the work

of jean arp and sophie taeuber


Endowed with an exceptional archival collection

and a rich library, the fondation arp is a centre

of reference and studies, open to scientific

and educational research.


The archival collection bequeathed by Marguerite Arp

at the time of its creation (correspondence, biographical photographs and works) has been supplemented

over the years by two important donations :

the archives of François Arp, brother and collaborator

of Jean Arp,

the Greta Stroeh archives, assistant to Marguerite Arp

and director of the Foundation in the 1990s.


The Foundation’s library, devoted to modern art

in general and more specificly to the work

of Sophie Taeuber and Jean Arp, includes the books

that belonged to the two artists. The library is regularly enriched by the acquisition of the latest scientific publications.


Various donations are regularly added to these archives, including those of Claude Gubler, Marc Dachy, Ava Stroeh and Antoine Poncet.


Access to the study centre is granted to researchers

by reservation. They should send an application

with a brief presentation of their research project to : general@fondationarp.org
