Alexander Calder (United States, 20th Century)

Alexander Calder, Potpourri en Ciel (1975), Signed Lithograph

Against a vivid sky blue, celestial shapes of different shapes and colors come together in this piece by American artist Alexander Calder. There are seemingly two suns-- one red with rays, the other a solid yellow with a strong black outline. The only part of this work that is not a solid color is the moon, which bears a face in profile, including an ear. This whimsical arrangement is typical of the abstract works done by Alexander Calder in his painted works. Known for his wire artwork, Calder (1898-1976) innovated the modern art world with his suspended moving sculptures, also known as mobiles. Throughout his career he also experimented with oil, watercolor, etching, gouache, serigraphy, jewelry, and building interiors. This lithograph is framed in a black and gold wood frame with a white mat and gold bevel.
