Alexander Calder, Mobile

calder ebony mobile.jpgJust wonderful

The extraordinary delicacy of an early Alexander Calder (1898-1976) entitled "Ebony Sticks in Semi-Circle," was created in 1934. It was estimated $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 and has been in the same private collection for almost 50 years, acquired after it was exhibited in Chicago at the Renaissance Society in an exhibit of Calder's work in 1935. It looks as contemporary as anything created today. It sold for $3,554,500 in May this year at Sotheby's!
