Profoundly international, his work defies categorization within a defined formalist school or on national grounds. Extensively

The essential Alexander Calder by Howard Greenfeld( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 243 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
