About the Artist

The National Gallery is home to a wide variety of mobiles, stabiles, standing mobiles, and works on paper by American master Alexander Calder (1898–1976). Calder is best known for his invention of the mobile, or kinetic abstract sculpture, which he began making in Paris in the early 1930s, as well as his radical wire sculpture. He also applied his innovative aesthetic to diverse media such as jewelry and theater sets. From the 1950s onward, he gained international renown for his monumental sculptures, which grace public plazas and parks worldwide.
