Abstract:

Collection consists of thirty-nine personal and business letters and postcards from Hans and Marguerite Arp to Richard and Beate Huelsenbeck. Some postcards are also signed by Gabrielle Buffet-Picabia, Otto Flake and others. The letters include significant mention of Arp's exhibitions, including the successful "Derriere Le miroir" (1950). Publications by and about both Arp and Huelsenbeck are discussed, and include Huelsenbeck's Dada Manifesto (Anthology) and Arp's "On My Way" and "Dreams and Projects." Also mentioned is Arp's Grand Prize in the 1954 Biennale. Among the many friends and acquaintances discussed are several other Dadaists and Surrealists; New York dealers and curators, including Curt Valentin, whose 1954 death is mentioned; and artists, editors and writers, among whom Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart, Siegfried Giedion-Welcker and Gabrielle Buffet-Picabia are of particular note. The work and exhibitions of Sophie Tauber-Arp are discussed in depth, and of particular interest is the chronicle of Arp's relationship with Helen Burckhardt (1950) whom he wanted to marry. Throughout much of the letters is reference to Arp's illness.

There are also letters from James Thrall Soby to Huelsenbeck requesting that he write an article on Arp for a forthcoming retrospective and monograph on Arp at the MOMA, New York, 1957.
