ALEXANDER CALDER "SOLEIL NOIR" LITHO
Caviar20 has a particular interest in accomplished sculptors who are simultaneously active printmakers - Richard Serra, Kosso Eloul and Louise Nevelsonare prime examples of artists whose work can be found on Caviar20.com
The inimitable Alexander Calder’s signature creation is the mobile. One of the most delightful examples of Modernist sculpture, Calder’s works are instantly recognizable in museums around the world.
Calder was a prolific and active print maker with an unmissable palette; bold modernist shapes rendered in saturated primary colors. His compositions were playful flat geometric compositions occasionally flirting with figuration.
“Black Sun” is a paradigm of a Calder multiple - yet unique and distinctive due to its fascinating stylized sun. Black normally appears in the form of heavy outlines in his geometric compositions. It is interesting to encounter the color predominantly featured in this work.
