Alexander Calder's wire portraits





















These are wired portraits by Alexander Calder.
We remember Calder's mobiles and stabiles and forget that he created in other mediums with other intentions. Some exhibitions brought back these great works to public attention last year.

On the top left Fernand Léger is holding by the chin his wired profile done by Calder. This is a great picture and there are more here of others of these great profiles. Top left is Artur Varese at the Whitney Museum and the the last picture is Alexander Calder looking at two of his works.
