Alexander Calder: Modern from the Start celebrates this extraordinarily fertile relationship between Museum of Modern Art and an artist who was both an important creative partner and, with his magnificent gift of 19 works in 1966, a major donor. Through MoMA, Calder came to be known as a pioneer of modern sculpture, and through Calder, MoMA came to understand itself as an American museum of modern art.

About the Artist, Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder (American, 1898–1976) was one of the most brilliantly inventive artists of the 20th century. Though he is best remembered for his sculpture, and particularly for his mobiles, he produced a variety of other works during his extraordinarily prolific career. These included paintings, lithographs, jewelry, toys, and designs for limited edition textiles.
