Library Journal

This beautiful catalog accompanying an exhibition showing through 2009 centers on an aspect of Alexander Calder's art of which few are aware. Calder was influenced by the Bauhaus movement that promoted art to the masses, and he sold his masterpieces-composed of everything from broken glass to gold-at affordable prices. Renowned for his mobiles, he made jewelry that has been largely overlooked. In this work coedited by the artist's grandson, 197 color and 59 black-and-white photographs beautifully capture 450 pieces out of the 1800 Calder produced in his lifetime and show the progression of his style as he matured as an artist. Throughout, Calder's wonderful senses of design and humor are evident. Curators Mark Rosenthal and Jane Adlin provide background on and analysis of Calder's influences and world at large. A chronology and credit are at the back. Recommended for public, academic, and special libraries.
