Alexander Calder by Joan M Marter( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synonymous with modern art. As Marter makes clear, Calder's innovations fuse the modernist tenets formulated by the School of Paris during the first decades of the twentieth century with a variety of other sources, including Bauhaus theatre and ballet design, American folk art, constructivist principles, and Dada - surrealist concepts. Profoundly international, his work defies categorization within a defined formalist school or on national grounds. Extensively

"A Bestiary, published in 1955, was compiled by Richard Wilbur and illustrated by Alexander Calder. Calder created more than fifty whimsical drawings and Wilbur chose excerpts from classic works of literature--poetry, essays, novels, plays, and stories--to accompany them. The "wire-form" illustrations of animals and mythical creatures are paired with engaging and unexpected quotations, producing juxtapositions such as William Blake on the Sheep, William Shakespeare on the Bee, William Faulkner on the Dog, Ben Franklin on the Eagle, Walt Whitman on the Spider, Henry Thoreau on the Mouse, and Franz Kafka on the Mermaid. Other pairs are more obvious, including Herman Melville on the Whale and Rudyard Kipling on the Ape"--A blog post by Jillian Suarez on the Guggenheim Blogs "Findings" at https://www.guggenheim.org/blogs/findings/the-wire-form-bestiary-of-alexander-calder-and-richard-wilbur

La Fontaine : selected fables by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

10 editions published between 1948 and 1968 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Fontaine's verse fables turned the traditional folktales derived from Aesop and a range of Oriental sources into some of the greatest, and best-loved, poetic work in French. His versions of stories such as 'The Hare and the Tortoise' and 'The Wolf and the Lamb' are witty and sophisticated, satirizing human nature in miniature dramas in which the outcome is always unpredictable. The behaviour of both animals and humans is usually centred on deception and cooperation (or the lackof it), as they cheat and fight each other, arguing about life and death, property and food, in an astonishing vari

Calder in Connecticut by Eric Zafran( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most influential and best loved of all twentieth-century sculptors, Alexander Calder worked primarily in Connecticut after settling in a Roxbury farmhouse in 1933. Connecticut provided a richly stimulating creative environment for him in the critical years when he developed his unique mobiles and stabiles and established his artistic reputation. This intimate and engaging portrait of Calder, at work and at play, offers new insight into how his art was shaped by the state's landscape, his home and studio, his family, and the fascinating circle of artists, writers, curators, and collectors who befriended him. Engaging and authoritative, this visual biography includes many previously unpublished photographs, documents, and reproductions of little-known art works. An account of the home and studio by Alexander S.C. Rower, Calder's grandson, and an affectionate tribute by Calder's neighbor, playwright Arthur Miller, complete the volume, produced in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford."--Publisher's description
Calder's portraits : a new language by Barbara Beth Zabel( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Calder (1898-1976) has long been celebrated around the world for his mobiles and stabiles. Less well known is his revolutionary transformation of the art of portraiture. With his extraordinary series of wire portraits begun in the 1920s, Calder began "drawing in space" -- bending, looping, and spiraling wire to capture the distinctive features of his subjects. Although he moved toward abstraction in the 1930s, he never abandoned portraiture; indeed, his interaction with friends and colleagues continued to inspired portraits for the rest of his life. This book presents work in this genre--drawings and oil paintings, as well as wire sculptures and mobiles--spanning the artist's entire career

The essential Alexander Calder by Howard Greenfeld( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The American sculptor, Alexander Calder, was one of the most inventive and beloved artists of his time. He was best known for his mobiles -- hanging, dangling, perfectly balanced innovative sculptures that twist and orbit in the breeze -- and for his stabiles, stationary sculptures that are often enormous and that grace and enliven public spaces around the world. Did you know that: the term mobile was coined by Surrealist artist Marcel Duchamp? Calder created and was ringmaster of a miniature circus that brought him fame in Europe and America and that still delights those who view it? he graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering? both his father and grandfather were well-known sculptors in Philadelphia?"--Jacket

Calder : Alexander Calder - avant-garde in motion by Susanne Meyer-Büser( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While showcasing a large number of Calder's early abstract sculptures, this book also presents key works by his contemporaries, such as Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró and Jean Arp. By setting Calder's work alongside that of other artists, the volume establishes lines of influence and differentiation, as well as the larger context in which he created his sculptures. Full-page images of Calder's iconic mobiles and stabiles give a rare sense of Calder's often playful use of space, and enable readers to study his work in detail. An accompanying DVD includes historical and experimental films, avant-garde music, interviews and a walk through the exhibition, presenting the whole of Calder's achievement in an unprecedented fashion.
