Today’s “Designer Pick” showcases the works of innovative artist and sculptor Alexander Calder. As a highly respected and influential artist of the twentieth century, the creative designer is most known for his works that push the boundaries of abstract art, creating pieces that are visually bold and characteristically direct. Growing up as the son of two artistic parents who were also known for their sculptural designs, Alexander was inclined to the arts as a child, creating two of his first sculptures at the age of eight. During a trip to Paris, Alexander became intrigued with the art of abstraction after having visited the studio of Piet Mondrian. This influential event spurred his endeavor into the world of abstract art from which these visually inspiring lithographs derived. All signed and dated by the artist himself, the featured images below are a few of the pieces from his extensive collection. Each would make a great addition to any proud collector.
