Alexander Calder: Gouaches
October 21, 2011 - November 26, 2011
32 East 57th Street

Pace Prints is pleased to present Alexander Calder: Works on Paper, a collection of gouaches, prints, and drawings that were created between 1944 and 1976. This group of works will be on display at Pace Prints at 32 East 57th Street on the 3rd Floor.

Alexander Calder developed a passion for gouaches and works on paper early in his career, appreciating the ease at which he could manipulate the surface and experiment on a smaller scale than his mobiles and sculptures. The eleven works on display in the main gallery demonstrate Calder’s mastery of line, solid balance of composition and eye for color.

After receiving a degree in mechanical engineering from Stevens Institute, Hoboken, New Jersey in 1919 and studying at the Art Students League in New York, Alexander Calder had his first solo exhibition of oil paintings at The Artists’ Gallery in New York in 1926. As Calder began to gain fame for his paintings and sculptural work he also continued to experiment with different mediums, eventually going on to create a large variety of objects, ranging in from monumental to minuscule. His artistic proliferation, immense talent, and willingness to push the boundaries of artistic expression have secured the international reputation that he has today.

The work of Alexander Calder is included in over 90 public institutions and his estate is represented by the Pace Gallery.
