Art Miami New York Artist of the Day: Alexander Calder

4/27/15

by Art Miami New York

Hard to say where to begin with regards to the remarkable career of Alexander Calder. In addition to the kinetic sculptures Marcel Duchamp christened "mobiles" (a hybrid of "mobile" and and "motive"), which sprang from his Cirque Calder (the best which is on view at The Whitney), the American multi-dimensionalist created jewelry (Peggy Guggenheim famously wore one of his earrings paired with another from Yves Tanguy at the opening of Art of This Century), theatrical sets (for such luminaries as Martha Graham and Erik Satie) and monuments (including the 35 ton "Mountains and Clouds" which dominates the atrium of Washington DC's Hart Senate Office Building). Then too there were the paintings, which Calder kept at through the whole of his life.

 

Art Miami New York is proud to announce that two of those paintings -- "Blue and Yellow Butterfly" (1973) and "Rouge et Bleu" (1971) -- will be among the works respectively featured by Chowaiki and Co. and Hollis Taggart Galleries at the inaugural edition of the Fair.
