  • Artist Biography

    Alexander Calder

    American • 1898 - 1976

    Alexander Calder is best known for his creation of the mobile. He employed materials such as wire and sheet metal and transformed them into delicate forms that respond to the wind or float in air. Born into a family of artists, Calder created art from childhood and moved to Paris in 1926, where he became a pioneer of the international avant-garde. In addition to his mobiles, Calder produced an array of public artworks worldwide as well as drawings, paintings, jewelry, prints, and textiles, among others. Calder was born in Lawnton, Pennsylvania.
