Sophie Taeuber-Arp is widely considered to be one of the earliest pioneers of geometric art. A multi-disciplinary artist working with paint, wood, textiles, and glass, she strove for compositional balance by carefully arranging shapes and colors on flat planes. This early example already shows a restraint and sophistication that her older contemporaries took years to develop. Her advantage was a background in textiles, which allowed her to visualize and execute vertical-horizontal compositional structures, similar to the “warp and woof” structure in weaving.
