"This program offers a rare examination of the life and work of Mark Rothko. Rothko gave abstraction the emotional power of music and poetry.

Calder sculpteur de l'air by François Lévy-Kuentz( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in French and English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unique modern artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) revolutionized the art of sculpture with his distinctive modernism, freeing sculpture from its stand and adding movement to the art itself. He rose to fame in the 1930s with his renowned Miniature Circus, but his modernist creativity skyrocketed with his wire sculptures, an invention he dubbed "drawing in space". Contemporary, and friends with Duchamp, Miro, and Mondrian, who have greatly influenced his evolution, this genius tinkerer, too often limited to his Mobiles, was fueled by artistic renewal, creating such unexpected shapes as his huge stabile sculptures now exhibited worldwide. In light of the artist's life, this film retraces this unique quest and explores the masterpieces that have marked the history of 20st century art
