Etsy Inspiration: Alexander Calder

The artist designed hundreds of pieces for his wife Louisa James Calder, as well as the art glitterati of the day such Georgia O’Keefe, Peggy Guggenheim, and the wives of Joan Miro, Marcel Duchamp and Marc Chagall. Dramatic as they were, these statement-making items were lightweight and meant to move with the body, as his mobiles moved in the wind. Images and text Cited from here.
