Alexander Calder "Composition With Pyramids
Item Details
Description
Circles and Clouds" 1970 Lithograph. Hand signed and numbered 64/95. Piece is in good condition with vibrant colors. Two very minor blemishes on the top center & top left edge as photographed. Image 43"x29.5" Frame: 53"x40.5" Slight crease at bottom center edge of image as photographed. Alexander Calder (1898 - 1976) was an American sculptor known both for his innovative mobiles (kinetic sculptures powered by motors or air currents) that embrace chance in their aesthetic, his static "stabiles", and his monumental public sculptures. Calder preferred not to analyze his work, saying, "Theories may be all very well for the artist himself, but they shouldn't be broadcast to other people." In addition to sculptures, Calder painted throughout his career, beginning in the early 1920s. He picked up his study of printmaking in 1925, and continued to produce illustrations for books and journals. His projects from this period include pen-and-ink line drawings of animals for a 1931 publication of Aesop's fables. As Calder's sculpture moved into the realm of pure abstraction in the early 1930s, so did his prints. The thin lines used to define figures in the earlier prints and drawings began delineating groups of geometric shapes, often in motion.
