Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder (July 22, 1898 – November 11, 1976) was an American sculptor best known as the originator of the mobile, a type of kinetic sculpture the delicately balanced or suspended components of which move in response to motor power or air currents; by contrast, Calder’s stationary sculptures are called stabiles.

PETERLOON DRAWING ROOM Based on his commissions to modern artist, Alexander Calder, Saul Steinberg and Jean Miro, for embellishments for the eighth floor lobby of his Terrace Plaza Hotel in downtown Cincinnati, John J. Emery’s, (1898-1976), residence might come as a surprise. For Peterloon, his 1,200 acre estate at Indian Hill, had beyond question, the handsomest, most commanding Georgian revival house ever built in Ohio. It was completed after two years, at the start of the Great Depression, in 1930. During construction, the Emerys occupied a specially built smaller Delano & Aldrich house nearby. Restrained but hardly severe, in terms of an imposing scale and outstanding craftsmanship, Peterloon easily rivals earlier, more ornate examples of this acclaimed firm’s better known country houses on the East Coast. At least two certainly figured in their selection as architects by the Emery’s in the first place. Ultimately becoming a close family friend, in 1924, William Adams Delano had designed a uniqu ...
Christie’s made history tonight with a $745 million sale in which one jaw-dropping price followed another. Incredibly the sale exceeded the previous $691 million overall total set at this past November’s evening contemporary sale, and the year-ago spring contemporary auction that pulled in a then–record $495 million. Tonight’s expectation had been “in the region of $500 million.” But if prices were staggering, so was the material on offer. Observers agreed such a top-notch group of blue chip contemporary works will rarely be offered together at one sale anytime soon again. The sale featured no fewer than nine lots priced at a minimum of $20 million each, but there was no shortage of eager buyers. New records were set for Alexander Calder, Joseph Cornell, Robert Gober, Joan Mitchell, Barnett Newman, Frank Stella, and Salvatore Scarpitta. Of 72 lots on offer, 68, or 92 percent, were sold. By value the sale achieved 98 percent. The top lot of the night was Barnett Newman‘s Black Fire I (1961) w ...

At the same time, a capsule containing various documents is buried under a slab below the gigantic sculpture, to be re-opened by the Mayor of Montreal in the year 2067! A little less edifying are the comments made by Governor Romney back in Michigan from his visit two days before.

The rumors are true. I won't live suffocated by shame or denial any more: I still love Alexander Calder.
Central Library is home to a large mobile by Alexander Calder. Calder was born in 1898 in Lawnton, PA, which is now Philadelphia. His father, Alexander Stirling Calder, was a sculptor and teacher. His grandfather, Alexander Milne Calder, was also a sculptor. Calder received a degree in engineering from the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1919. After college, Calder learned how to draw and paint in New York and Paris, France. His early work included designing toys and drawing caricatures for various periodicals. He became fascinated by the Circus, and made a mini-wire circus, and showed it off in his travels and at art shows. After 1929, Calder began creating motor-driven wire mobiles, which later he designed to move without the need of a motor. It was Marcel Duchamp in France who came up with the name ‘Mobile.’ Calder said of the name, “In addition to something that moves, in French it also means motive.” According to Gerard-Georges Lemaire in his writing of Calder for .. ...
Art tidbit for today: In 1919 Marcel Duchamp was, presumably, the first person to draw a moustache on a print of the Mona Lisa, "re-appropriating" it as a "readymade" found object art, he helped make us what we are today. On the print he put L.H.O.O.Q., which if pronounced phonetically in French is "Elle a chaud au cul," or translated, "She's got a nice *** " Duchamp also gave us the words "mobile" and "stabile" for Alexander Calder's works. And his Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2 is in my opinion one of the greatest paintings of all time.
Today six years ago - Maria Luigia Guaita - the founder of fondazione Il Bisonte per lo studio dell'arte grafica passed away. Maria Luigia Guaita founded the print studio Il Bisonte In 1959. Great artists like Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Gino Severini, Carlo Carrá and Ardengo Soffici i.e. worked at the studio that was transformed into a non-profit cultural organization in 1983. I had the pleasure of knowing Signora Guaita during my years of studies at Il Bisonte. She believed that only art and poetry can save the world - a great inspiration for all of us and something to aspire for. - Kell

Ok, so returning to reality, I must admit: the nouveau-riche have inherited the World. I did not even glance at that post-modern trash, everything since and including Damien Hirst is pure trash without any artistic value, with noted exceptions. But, the pieces from Picasso, Fernard Leger, etc. and I mean drawings made by significant, truly artful dead masters goes from $150,000.00 to $1,500,000.00 (yes, cool 1.5 million US$) for an Alexander Calder mobile-statue a little bigger than the one that my brother uses to hang his mouse on! to 25 Million USD$ for an Amedeo Modigliani (and frankly it's definitely worth it, but I'm going again tomorrow to investigate further). All indicative of the purchasing power of the art connoisseur these days; the hoi polloi with money purchase that post-modern kite. Like flies to honey. Logging off...more tomorrow...p
Maryette Charlton May 18, 1924 - November 25, 2013 Filmmaker, photographer, artist, performer and downtown arts advocate extraordinaire Maryette Charlton passed away in New York City on November 25 at the age of 89. She was born in Manchester, Iowa in 1924 and was educated at Pratt and Columbia University. She flew mail planes in the Midwest in the forties and founded and taught at the Art department of American University of Beirut in the fifties before permanently moving to New York City. Her work as a filmmaker documented the works of Alexander Calder, e.e. cummings, Frederick Kiesler, Pierre Matisse, Dorothy Miller, Lenore Tawney, Loren MacIver and others. Over the years Maryette and longtime partner Lillian Kiesler became the most enthusiastic supporters of many young artists. As a performer Maryette appeared in the works of Cindy Lubar, Richard Foreman, Jo Andres, Tim Miller, Steve Buscemi and others. She most recently appeared in the film “Ghostlight” as Helen Keller.

The Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid has a fabulous history. The first cultural centre in Spain and a vibrant place of dialogue between arts and sciences. It has been visited and/or lived in by Federico García Lorca, Salvador Dalí ,Luis Buñuel, Jiménez, José Ortega y Gasset, Miguel de Unamuno, Albert Einstein, Paul Valéry, Marie Curie, Igor Stravinsky, John M. Keynes, Alexander Calder, Walter Gropius, Henri Bergson and Le Corbusier to name but a few! I expect Einstein had my bed previously - it's relatively small. Ha!

The historic Dock Street Theater was originally constructed as the first Planters Hotel by Alexander Calder of Charleston in 1809. Alexander Calder moved from the furniture making business to hospitality when heh built the Planters Hotel on the corner of Queen and Church Street. Later the Calder Family's Planters Hotel was converted to what is known today as the Dock Street Theater. Two ghosts roam through the theater. First is a prostitute the locals call Nettie who died when struck by lightning from her porch. The second ghost in the Dock Street Theater is more notable as not only an actor, but the father of John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Abraham Lincoln. His name is Junius Brutus Booth and died in 1852.

World's Ugliest Airports John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City When JFK was young—back when it was still called Idlewild—it was beautiful, a stunning assemblage of the best modern architecture of its time. The International Arrivals Building featured a graceful arched hall decorated with an Alexander Calder mobile, and Eero Saarinen’s TWA terminal was a bit of heaven. That was 50 years ago. Today JFK is resolutely hellish; arriving passengers are often greeted with endless blank corridors and stairways. “More than dysfunctional, it’s completely bananas,” says Museum of Modern Art design curator Paola Antonelli. Especially loathed are the Delta terminals, which industrial designer David Gresham calls “filthy, dilapidated, and unclear in any sense of signage or direction.” The Upside: The new JetBlue terminal is perfectly functional. And Terminal 1—built in the 1990s and used by a number of international carriers—is not so bad.

8 x 8: A Chess Sonata in 8 Movements (1957) is an American experimental film directed by Hans Richter, Marcel Duchamp, and Jean Cocteau released on March 15, 1957 in New York City. It features original music by Robert Abramson, John Gruen and Douglas Townsend. Described by Richter as "part Freud, part Lewis Carroll," it is a fairy tale for the subconscious based on the game of chess. While living in New York, Hans Richter directed two feature films, Dreams That Money Can Buy and 8x8: A Chess Sonata in collaboration with Max Ernst, Cocteau, Paul Bowles, Fernand Leger, Alexander Calder, Duchamp, and others, which was partially filmed on the lawn of his summer house in Southbury, Connecticut.

MILWAUKEE -- "Red Nose" just meant a reindeer named Rudolph to Karen Mallet until she bought a print by that name for $12.34 at a Goodwill store in Milwaukee. It turned out to be a lithograph by American artist Alexander Calder worth $9,000.
Two days ago I made some comments on Alexander Calder, the best American sculptor in the twentieth century. He was well known for "mobiles", a kinetic sculpture he created, of which the delicately balanced or suspended components move in response to motor power or air currents. You may wonder where to find the "mobiles", intead of searching pictures onlie. In fact, in the campus of the U, there is one exquisite example, although it might not be designed by Calder. When you enter the lobby of the Marriott Center for Dance, raise your head and look up, you can see three figures in brass sheets are "dancing" gracefully in the air. Their swift and light movements make you feel that they are drifted, lifted and liberated to the air by stirred currents, rather than being kinetically suspended and subtly stabilized. Everytime, when I went to the MCD, they always reminded me of the great artworks by Alexander Calder.

Now, in a culture such as ours, where the tyranny of the dull mind holds sway, we can expect our intelligentsia to write off Egyptian heart-weighing as quaint superstition, to dismiss squirrel-chatter illumination as flaky Asian guru woo woo. Fine. But what about the Euro-American Trickster tradition, what about Coyote and Raven and Loki and Hermes and the community-sanctioned blasphemies of the clown princes of Saturnalia? For that matter, what about Dada, Duchamp, and the 'pataphysics of Alfred Jarry? What about Gargantua and Finnegans Wake, John Cage and Erik Satie, Gurdjieff and Robert Anton Wilson, Frank Zappa and Antoni Guadi? What about Carlos Castaneda, Picasso, and the alchemists of Prague? Allen Ginsberg and R. D. Laing, Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Lewis carroll, Alexander Calder and Italo Calvino, Henry Miller, Pippy Longstocking, Andrei Cdrescu, Ishmael Reed, Alan Rudolph,Mark Twain,and theelectric Kool-Aid acid pranksters?
