Alexander Calder was an innovator in Modern art by creating a method of sculpting and wire bending to create “drawings in space.” Calder was an artist who resonated with the Futurists and Constructivists, as well as building blocks of early non objective painting. Calder’s work is represented in the collections of numerous distinguished institutions, including the Art Institute of Chicago; Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; the National Gallery, Washington, D. C.; Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland; Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona; and Tate Gallery, London.
