c.1968

—Alexander Calder (1898-1976) —

Alexander "Sandy" Calder descended from a family of famous Philadelphia sculptors. His father's Swann Memorial Fountain on Logan Square and grandfather's City Hall sculptures represent art work from three generations. Trained as a mechanical engineer and artist, Calder invented "mobiles" and "stabiles," such as this stationary work, as well as paintings, toys, tapestries, and jewelry.
Edmund Bacon. Director of Philadelphia's City Planning Commission, purchased this iron alloy painted sculpture for the City in 1968 with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
