Alexander Calder Mobile Limited Edition Plate Set

About the Artist

From the invention of the mobile to the creation of outdoor sculpture on a grand scale in bolted steel plate, American artist Alexander Calder (1898–1976) profoundly transformed the history of modern art. Over the course of seven decades, Calder made some 22,000 works that range from wire sculptures, mobiles, stabiles, monumental sculptures, paintings, and drawings, to lesser-known works such as jewelry, bronzes, and domestic objects.

In the spirit of Alexander Calder's kinship with France, enduring from his early years in Paris to his later years in Saché in the Indre-et-Loire, the Calder Foundation worked closely with Bernardaud to craft reproductions on porcelain of Calder mobiles from the 1940s and 1950s. The selection ranges from a 1940 noise-producing mobile with its cascade of projecting rods to masterpieces of spatial complexity from the 1950s that charge the surrounding space with infinite possibilities. With their black and red silhouettes and curving shapes, Calder's mobiles exude a radiant splendor that, in the manner of Bernardaud's storied craftsmanship, continues to cultivate inspiration among sophisticates worldwide.
