ALEXANDER CALDER (1898-1976)

 
Well known for his candor and pragmatic sensibility, Alexander Calder was as direct, ingenious, and straight to the point in life as he was in his art. “Personnages”, for example, is unabashedly dynamic, a work that recalls his early love of the action of the circus as well as his insights into human nature. The character of “Personnages” suggests a spontaneous drawing-in-space, recalling his radical wire sculptures of the 1920s.<br>© 2023 Calder Foundation, New York / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York Well known for his candor and pragmatic sensibility, Alexander Calder was as direct, ingenious, and straight to the point in life as he was in his art. “Personnages”, for example, is unabashedly dynamic, a work that recalls his early love of the action of the circus as well as his insights into human nature.

...MENOS....
Conocido por su franqueza y sensibilidad pragmática, Alexander Calder era tan directo, ingenioso y directo al grano en la vida como en su arte. "Personnages", por ejemplo, es descaradamente dinámica, una obra que recuerda su temprana afición a la acción del circo, así como sus percepciones de la naturaleza humana. El carácter de "Personnages" sugiere un dibujo espontáneo en el espacio, que recuerda sus radicales esculturas de alambre de los años veinte.
