Beschreibung des Verlags

Alexander Calder is one of the most important American artists of the twentieth century and a pioneer of kinetic art. This lavishly illustrated e-book focuses on Calder's works of the 1930s and 1940s, a period in which the sculptor experimented with wildly different artistic directions. While showcasing a large number of Calder's early abstract sculptures, this book also presents key works by his contemporaries, such as Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró and Jean Arp. By setting Calder's work alongside that of other artists, Alexander Calder: Avant-garde in Motion establishes lines of influence and differentiation, as well as the larger context in which he created his sculptures. More than 100 images of Calder's iconic mobiles and stabiles give a rare sense of Calder's often playful use of space, and enable readers to study his work in detail. This e-book presents the whole of Calder's achievement in an unprecedented fashion.
