"One could not leave any sort of metal object within Calder's reach, he would immediately transform spoons, knives, antennas, alarm clocks. His inventions were limitless" - Jean Painlevé on Calder's visits at 'Ty an Diaoul', Jean Painleve and Genevieve Hamon's home in Brittany • Jean Painleve met American sculptor Alexander Calder in Paris in the late 1920s, at one of Calder's "Circus" performances. Their friendship grew out of an enthusiasm for each others work, a shared seriousness of purpose allied with a playfulness and ingenuosity in their respective medium. More than twenty years after the first performance of "Calder's Circus", the two friends decided to reenact it for the camera and leave a record of that early, ephemeral, fleeting piece, which turned out to be crucial in the artist's development. • Don't miss the chance to see Jean Painlevé's film in the exhibition "CALDER MONUMENTAL" now at the Denver Botanic Gardens until October 2017. • Film: The "sword swallower" in this extract from Jean Painlevé 'Calder's 1927 Great Circus' 1955, 16mm film, color/sound, 45 min. © 2017 Archives Jean Painlevé, Paris. • #caldermonumental #calder #painleve #jeanpainleve #archivespainleve #calderfoundation #caldercircus #1955 #1927 #greatcaldercircus #16mm #film #director #sword #swordswallower #art #exhibition #denverbotanicgardens @denverbotanic @calderfoundation

Great surprise at the Berkeley Art Museum.  Before he did his famous wire-sculpture Circus, Calder did this large gouache painting on canvas 1926.  Hidden gem.  #calder #alexandercalder #circus #caldercircus #calderpainting #berkeleyartmuseum #modernart #circusart

I have always been fascinated with miniatures. These performers are less than 2 inches tall. They were handmade and painted, in the 1950s, by an artist with very steady hands. The circus parade comprises 20 figures. I have some tiny studies that the artist made.  #miniatureart  #miniaturesculpture  #circushorses  #circuswagons  #circus  #horses  #horses.club  #ringlingbros  #caldercircus  #miniaturecircus #pjmcardlecollection
