Alexander Calder Jealous Husband

Alexander Calder's jewelry collection is at the Met! This is the first time the collection will receive it's own extensive exhibit. The American born artist was more famously known for his many mobiles and paintings, frequently using a sunset orange color (below) that became known as "Calder Red." My personal fave of his creations is the mercury fountain (bottom pic) he created in 1937, commissioned by the Spanish Republican government for the World Exhibition in Paris.
