Exhibition at the Musée Soulages, Rodez, 23 June - 29 October 2017

It is with an extract from a poem by André Masson, written in 1942, that this book and this exhibition on Alexander Calder, the immense sculptor of the 20th century, opens. The exhibition at the Soulages Museum, of international scope, brings together 105 works created between 1925 and 1974.

The book also reveals the smallest, the wire figures of the Roaring Twenties like Josephine Baker, out of the Bal nègre. The book speaks of a Calder, an imposing American figure as seen in the movies, with his flamboyant red wool shirt; it also describes another Calder who was French at heart, in Paris in the 1920s, notably with his Miniature Circus, and in Touraine from the 1950s onwards, in Saché, where he built a large workshop to produce his metal sculptures.
