Collection: Alexander Calder (American 1898-1976)

“Alexander Calder was best known for his invention of the mobile and his wire sculptures. My whole theory about art is the disparity that exists between form, masses, and movement, the artist once said. Born  in 1898 in Lawnton, PA, Calder turned to art in the 1920s, studying drawing and painting at the Art Students League in New York. He moved to Paris to continue his studies in 1926, where he was introduced to the European avant-garde through performances of his Cirque Calder. I was very fond of the spatial relations, the whole thing of the vast space. I’ve always loved it, he said of his interest in the circus.  Calder attracted the attention of such notable figures as Marcel Duchamp, Jean Arp, and Fernand Léger. Over the course of seven decades, along with his famous mobiles, he also produced paintings, stabiles, standing mobiles, monumental outdoor sculptures, works on paper, domestic objects, and jewelry. He lived in both Roxbury, CT, and Saché, France, before his death in 1976 in New York, NY. Today, his works are found in major collections including The Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Tate Gallery in London."
