Alexander Calder is one of the world's most celebrated sculptors. Best known as the inventor of the mobile, Calder redefined sculpture through introducing the element of movement to his works. In addition to his mobiles, Calder also created static sculptures, called 'stabiles', as well as paintings, jewellery, theatre sets, and costumes.
