Alexander Calder was a prolific American artist who infused his artwork with a wit and whimsy inspired by his early fascination with the circus. His childhood hobby of crafting objects from found materials evolved into his invention of mobiles, kinetic sculptures composed of wires counterbalanced with thin metal fins that are set in motion by random air currents to create natural movement. In addition to these sculptures, he created stabiles, or static sculptures, paintings, gouaches, drawings, prints, jewelry, and tapestries. We will have a variety of works on display, including a five-foot wide standing mobile constructed circa 1940, petite stabiles, jewelry, prints, and a number of gouaches. Many of these artworks come from private collections and have never been exhibited.
