Alexander Calder PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alexander Calder free pdf A beautiful monograph on the work of Alexander Calder, one of the most celebrated and influential sculptors of our times, whose illustrious career spanned the twentieth century. Calder used his innovative genius to change and profoundly revolutionise the course of modern art, anticipating performance art by more than forty years and breathing life into a completely new genre with the first kinetic sculpture. Famous for his new method of sculpting, which entailed curving and twisting iron wire, he 'designed' tri-dimensional figures in space: these were suspended and abstract elements that moved to then regain balance while changing harmony (so-called mobiles). The first mobile was made in 1931 after the artist's encounter with Mondrian.
