HATJE CANTZ

Alexander Calder: Trees

Naming Abstraction

Edited by Delia Ciuha. Foreword by Sam Keller, Oliver Wick. Text by Oliver Wick.

Alexander Calder (1898–1976) famously transposed modernist visual abstraction into three-dimensional space, initially doing so in the context of European abstract artists such as Mondrian. In 1933, leaving Paris for his native United States, he settled in an old farmhouse in Roxbury, Connecticut, where the forms of nature became a new source of inspiration for his creativity. By the summer of 1934, Calder was producing his first outdoor sculptures. His monumental standing mobile "The Tree" (1966) exemplifies this new tension between abstraction and figuration. This volume, published for an exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler, tracks Calder’s evolution away from geometric abstraction and toward large-scale biomorphism via the tree motif. It includes maquettes that anticipate "The Tree" as well as a striking group of rarely seen sculptures from the 1930s to the 1950s.
