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.
