Author Biography - Aesop
A pioneering American sculptor and artist, Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is best known for his invention of the mobile. His playful sense of humor is evident throughout his works, which range from jewelry and toys to tiny, matchbox-sized wire sculptures and grand 70-foot steel sculptures that grace plazas throughout the world.
