Calder at OSP
Another sculptor I really admire is Alexander Calder (American, 1898-1976). I've stumbled across his work in the most unexpected places -- the wonderous 'Calder's Circus' at the New York Guggenheim, a downtown street exhibit last year, and a mercury fountain (1937) he gifted Joan Miro, housed at the Miro Foundation in Barcelona (the liquid flowing through it is actually mercury).
Here in Seattle I found 'Eagle'.
I wonder where I'll next find his work?
