In 1950, he executed a relief for the Harvard University Graduate Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts and also a mural at the UNESCO building in Paris. In 1954, Arp won the Grand Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. Among his many works "Cloud Shepherd," "Before my Birth," "Human Concretion," "En songe" and "Rising Up." Married to artist Sophie Taeuber, he died in Basel, Switzerland in 1966. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
