Cahiers d'Art n°1, 2015 - Calder in France

Legendary French art publishing house and gallery Cahiers d'Art, in collaboration with the Calder Foundation, is proud to present Calder in France, a tribute to Alexander Calder that focuses on the modern artist’s long-standing relationship with France. The revue, prepared in 2014, commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Atelier Calder Artists' Residency. It will be available in June 2015.

“Calder reached his artistic maturity in 1920s Paris at a time when the city was very much the center of burgeoning avant-garde experimentation. His early years in Paris marked the beginning of a lasting love for France, where he met many of his lifelong artist friends,” explains Alexander S. C. Rower, grandson of the artist and president of the Calder Foundation. “Calder’s time in France, and his continued legacy there, constitutes a natural and rich subject for study.”
