Smithsonian Magazine: Explore the Newly Digitized Archive of Alexander Calder, Famed ‘Sculptor of Air’. “During his lifetime, Alexander Calder’s whimsical ‘mobiles,’ or moving abstract sculptures that balance on thin wires and appear to float in the air, ensured his status as one of America’s most beloved sculptors. Forty-five years after the artist’s death in 1976 at age 78, admirers can explore materials linked to his life and work through a newly debuted digital archive from the Calder Foundation. Per a statement, the regularly updated site currently features 1,377 works of art, 1,000 historical photographs and archival documents, and 48 historic and contemporary scholarly texts.”
