Alexander Calder was born in Philadelphia in 1898 and died in New York in 1976.
Alexander Calder best known for his innovation of the mobile suspended sheet metal and wire assemblies that are activated in space by air currents.
Visually fascinating and emotionally engaging, those sculptures—along with his monumental outdoor bolted sheet metal stabiles, which only imply movement—make Calder one of the most-recognizable and beloved modern artists.
He also made a smaller number of sculptures in the more-traditional materials of wood and bronze and did paintings, mostly in gouache, as well as drawings, including illustrations for books, and prints, and was an inventive designer of jewellery.
