Obverse side of the 50 Swiss francs is showing the portrait of Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943), one of the outstanding abstract artists of this century. Her work includes painting, textiles, sculptures and reliefs. Dance and theater were also among the artist’s favored media expression. Circular, line and rectangular compositions, as well as the famous „Dada heads”, are typical of this work, as shown on the back of the note. Sophie Taeuber-Arp, who spearheaded new artistic movements, is one of the key figures in modern art.

Reverse side of the 50 Swiss francs is showing:
„Relief rectangulaire” 1936 — Sophie Taeuber-Arp is considered to be the creator of this type of relief. This work influenced an entire era of art history.
„Tête Dada” 1919 — this painted wooden head, an early example of Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s work during the period of the Zurich Dada movement, is a portrait of Hans Arp, who later became her husband.
„Lignes ouvertes” 1939 — this piece, from the last comprehensive group of works, is concerned with linearities and their interrelations, with surfaces and space, reflecting Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s early involvement in the art of dance.
Composition „Aubette” 1927 — this composition, a product of her involvement in decorating the rooms of the „Café Aubette” in Strasbourg, is a seminal early work of geometric-constructivist art.

Swiss francs can be purchased outside Switzerland from foreign currency brokers, including some banks. Switzerland is outside the euro currency system, although euros are generally accepted there, and the Swiss franc has generally proved stronger and more secure than other currencies including the euro and the U.S. dollar in the first decade of the 21st century.
