Alexander Calder: Avant-garde in Motion
Alexander Calder is one of the most importantand most popularAmerican artists of the twentieth century. This lavishly illustrated volume accompanies an exhibit at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf that focuses on Calders works of the 1930s and 40s, a period in which the sculptor experimented with a number of wildly different artistic directions.\n \nIn addition to showcasing a large number of Calders early abstract sculptures, this book also presents key works by his contemporaries, artists such as Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, and Jean Arp. By setting Calders work alongside that of other artists, the volume establishes not only lines of influence and differentiation, but also the larger context in which he created his sculptures. Beautiful full-page images of Calders iconic mobiles and stabiles give a rare sense of Calders often playful use of space, and enable readers to study his work in detail. An accompanying DVD includes historical and experimental films, avant-garde music, interviews, and a walk through the exhibition, bringing the whole of Calders achievement to life in unprecedented fashion.
