Summary Alexander Calder was an American sculptor, born in Philadelphia in 1898 and died in 1976 of a heart attack in New York, where he had gone to open a retrospective of his work. Son of two artists, and himself a trained engineer, Calder mostly created mobiles, assembled from pieces that would move with the currents of the air, stabiles or stationary statues made from cut sheet metal, and paintings. His art is poetic, merry and popular, """"the sublimation of a tree in the wind"""" according to Marcel Duchamp. He went on to develop a fascination with the theme of the circus, which reached its zen.
