Alexander Calder (1898-1976) was born in Connecticut. He is best known for his three dimensional brightly-painted sculptures (called stabiles) and mobiles. They range in scale from table-top sized works to massive outdoor installations. He also worked in painting and printmaking. He illustrated several books, including "Fables of Aesop" in 1931 and "Three Young Rats" in 1944. Calder is the son of sculptor and teacher A. Stirling Calder.
