Detailed description

Picture "Spirals and Petals" (1969), framed

The American sculptor Calder, who became known and famous for his moving wire sculptures and metal constructions, the so-called Mobiles and Stabiles, was also a convincing graphic artist. His friends such as Hans Arp or Marcel Duchamps inspired him, and he claimed that he created "Mondrians who move".
Alexander Calder was particularly interested in the free play with forms and colours in his graphics. In this way, the interest in dynamics and geometry of his sculptures and mobiles finds its counterpart on canvas. The cheerfulness, lightness and humour that characterise the rest of his oeuvre can also be discovered in his works on paper.

High-quality screenprint on heavy handmade paper. Noble framing in black satin with Munich gold and passe-partout, dustproof glazed. Size framed approx. 68 x 88 cm (h/w).

About Alexander Calder

1898-1975, US sculptor, graphic artist, inventor of the mobile

Alexander Calder was one of the most influential artists of Classical Modernism and became world-famous above all for his "Mobiles" and "Stabiles". He claimed of himself that he created "Mondrians that move".

Serenity, lightness, and humour characterise his oeuvre. He was inspired in his work by friends such as Hans Arp and Marcel Duchamps. Even as a graphic artist, he was impressive. What he was particularly interested in was the freedom to play with shapes and colours. The preoccupation with dynamics and geometry in the sculptures and mobiles thus found its counterpart on the canvas.
