Alexander Calder

 
 

Alexander Calder (1898-1976), whose illustrious career spanned much of the 20th century, is a founding father of modern wire sculpture.

He began by developing a method of sculpting: by bending and twisting wire, he essentially "drew" three-dimensional figures in space. He is renowned for the invention of the mobile, whose suspended, abstract elements move and balance in changing harmony.
