Scarce Polish avant-garde publication on Hans Arp by “a. r.” group member, Jan Brzekowski, including 10 reproductions of Arp’s works.

Richly illustrated publication of the “a. r.” (Artysci Rewolucyjni) group, which was the most prominent leftist Avant-garde circle in interwar Poland, based in Lodz. Jan Brzekowski (1903–1983) joined the group in 1930 after he spent some years in France, where he became friends with the most outstanding artists of the Paris avant-garde. Brzekowski wrote poetry in French and published several volumes of his works, illustrated by Arp.
