Alexander Calder, a major sculptor of the abstract movement, was born in Lawton, Pennsylvania, 1898, and passed away in New York, 1976. He embraced geometric abstraction and produced moving wire sculptures, or "mobiles" as Marcel Duchamp called them. From 1933 onwards, Alexander Calder's works received critical and public acclaim, particularly his painting "La Fontaine de Mercure", shown at the Universal Exhibition in 1937. In 1952, he received the Grand Prize at the Venice Biennale, and in 1964 the Guggenheim dedicated a major retrospective to him. His influence still resonates in modern days: in 2016, the Tate Modern held a major retrospective on the legendary sculptor.
