  • “George Goodstadt worked closely with Alexander Calder during the 1970’s when he was Calder’s American publisher. They produced many limited editions from Calder’s original gouaches. Quite often during those years, George traveled to France to have many of the limited editions printed in Paris and then onto Calder’s studio in Sache, France, where Calder hand signed the prints. They were then shipped back to the US for sale through Bank Street Atelier.” —Goodstadt Gallery

    • Artist Biography

      Alexander Calder

      American • 1898 - 1976

      Alexander Calder worked as an abstract sculptor and has been commonly referred to as the creator of the mobile. He employed industrious materials of wire and metal and transformed them into delicate geometric shapes that respond to the wind or float in air. Born into a family of sculptors, 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 constructions worldwide as well as drawings and paintings that feature the same brand of abstraction. Calder was born in Lawnton, Pennsylvania.
