Calder After the War

Abstract delicate and exquisite is Alexander Calder’s post war work, currently on show at the Pace Gallery in London until 7th June.

Calder was a contemporary of Duchamp, Picasso, Mondrian and in particular he struck up a life long  friendship with Miro while he was working in Paris in the 1930′s. They both loved working with simple lines and shapes, and it was Calder who wanted to take the paintings off the wall and make them into moveable objects and hence the term ‘mobile’ was invented.
