Calder in Connecticut
Eric Zafran, Alexander Calder, Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser, Cynthia E. Roman, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in association with Rizzoli International Publications, 2000 - Art - 168 pages
Perhaps the most influential and best loved of all twentieth-century sculptors, Alexander Calder worked primarily in Connecticut for several decades after settling in a Roxbury farmhouse in 1933. Connecticut provided a richly stimulating creative environment for him in the critical years when he developed his unique mobiles and stabiles and established his artistic reputation. This intimate and engaging portrait of Calder, at work and at play, offers new insight into how his art was shaped by the state's landscape, his home and studio, his family, and the fascinating circle of artists, writers, curators, and collectors who befriended him.
Engaging and authoritative, this visual biography includes many previously unpublished photographs, documents, and reproductions of little-known art works. An account of the home and studio by Alexander S. C. Rower, Calder's grandson, and an affectionate tribute by Calder's neighbor, playwright Arthur Miller, complete the volume, produced in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford.
