About the image

Alexander Calder
Gouache

An acclaimed and influential sculptor, Calder profoundly changed the course of modern art. He developed a new method of sculpting by bending and twisting wire, and so essentially he 'drew' three-dimensional figures in space. He is renowned for the invention of the mobile, whose suspended, abstract elements move and balance in changing harmony.
