ALEXANDER CALDER (American / 1898-1976)

Alexander ("Sandy") Calder was born in Pennsylvania, into a family of artists. Both his father and grandfather were sculptors, and his mother was a painter. Alexander Calder first trained as a mechanical engineer, and this training re-surfaced in his most famous artistic innovation, the mobile (in contrast to which Calder's conventional, ground-based sculptures are termed stabiles). Through his friendships with European avant-garde artists such as Miró, Arp, and Duchamp, and his longterm association with the Galerie Maeght, Alexander Calder, like Ellsworth Kelly, remained closely connected to the development of European art. Calder is recognised in both Europe and the USA as one of the key artists of the twentieth century.
