Exhibition Calder. Forger of gigantic dragonflies

24 june to 29 october 2017

 

Musée Soulages is devoting an exhibition to Alexander Calder (1898-1976), one of the greatest sculptors of the twentieth century.

Creator of famous sculptures in motion, particularly the mobile, he was the «king of wire» who invented pre-war wire sculpture and who modestly built a miniature circus which was admired by the Parisian avant-garde. He then quite naturally went on to embrace the Parisian abstract art world and its great figures such as Mondrian, Léger and Arp.

During the last fifteen years of his life, Calder lived and worked in his studio in Saché (Touraine) creating monumental metal sculptures designed for cities and buildings around the world.
