Art Study Center Seminar: Jean (Hans) Arp’s Sculptural Process—From Plaster Model to Bronze Cast

August 25, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Plaster casts and models are often integral to an artist’s production of sculpture, but the ways Jean (Hans) Arp incorporated them into his process sheds light on his concept of art. Join curatorial fellow Clemens Ottenhausen to examine 11 plaster casts and a bronze by Arp to pinpoint how he developed and finished his three-dimensional works. These works are recent acquisitions to the museums’ collections.

Led by:
Clemens Ottenhausen, Renke B. and Pamela M. Thye Curatorial Fellow in the Busch-Reisinger Museum
