ARTISTS / Calder, Alexander

American 1898-1976
"[Calder's] illustrious career spanned much of the 20th century, [and he] is one of the most acclaimed and influential sculptors of that century. Born into a family of celebrated, though more classically trained artists, Calder utilized his innovative genius to profoundly change the course of modern art. He began by developing a new method of sculpting: by bending and twisting wire, he essentially "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. Calder also devoted himself to making outdoor sculpture on a grand scale from bolted sheet steel. These stately titans grace public plazas in cities throughout the world."
