Alexander Calder

Since I planned to do a mobile or wind chime of fish for my midterm I chose to do Alexander Calder.

Arc of Petals (1941)

    Alexander Calder (1898 - 1976) was an American sculptor and painter famously know for being the creator of the mobile. He worked with wire figures and created miniature circus pieces. His wire sculpture were know as floating three-dimensional "drawings in space". I personally enjoy all of his works from his wire circuses to his bright modern looking paintings.
