Alexander Calder was born in 1898, to a family of artists. In 1923 he moved to New York to study at the Art Student’s League; as an illustrator, Calder was introduced to the world of the circus, which became a lifelong interest of his. After moving to Paris, Calder created his Cirque Calder, a complex and unique body of work. The forties and fifties were productive years, wherein major retrospectives were held including one at the Museum of Modern Art in 1943. Calder concentrated his efforts primarily on large-scale commissioned works in his later years. Retrospectives included the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1964 and in 1976 at the Whitney Museum of American Art, entitled, Calder’s Universe. Alexander Calder died in 1976.
