Alexander Calder (1898–1976) is a master at producing a sculptured representation of a visual idea. He gave new form to sculpture with his mobiles and stabiles.
In this piece offered at Nepenthe Gallery, Calder has created an original lithograph true to his concept that simple spheres and elementary shapes express the universality of form, using color, shape and balance.
Born July 22, 1898 in Philadelphia, Calder studied at Stevens Institute of Technology and at the Art Students League in New York.
His many works are in private and public collections throughout the world, among them: The Museum of Modern Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Berkshire Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, National Gallery of Art, Wadsworth Atheneum, St. Louis, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Smith College and Washington University. His works have been exhibited in galleries and leading national and international museums.
