Alexander Calder: Lithographs

Although Alexander Calder might be best known for his wire mobiles, the artist was also an avid printmaker at the end of his career. Featuring primary colors, geometric lines and spirals, and flattened biomorphic shapes, the imagery in Calder’s lithographs is often reminiscent of his sculptural work. While many of Calder’s prints may initially appear abstract, a closer look will reveal symbols of people, plants, and animals. Calder even used his prints for political activism—in 1967 and 1969, Calder produced posters protesting the Vietnam War.
