Calder-Picasso

Calder-Picasso: Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) – two of the most seminal figures of the twientieth-century art – innovated entirely new ways to perceive grand themes. While the dialogue between Calder-Picasso is filled with endless possibilities, a vital connection can be found specifically in their exploration of the void, or the absence of space, which both artists delineated from the figure through to abstraction. Calder and Picasso each dealt with the attributes of presenting or representing nonspace, whether…
