The charming correspondence between Calder and Miro is published here for the first time. It begins in 1928 with Calder's letter introducing himself to Miro and continues after Calder's death with Miro's poetic homage to his old friend. Rare photographs of the two men together and of the gifts of artwork they exchanged document the friendship. Published by Fondation Beyeler, The Phillips Collection, E. A. Seemann Verlag, 2004.
Calder/ Miro (Hardback). This original and visually stimulating book, and the exhibition which it accompanies, place the mobile sculptures of Calder alongside the poem paintings of Miro and in doing so provide fresh insights into the visual dialogue between these two artists. What did the painter see in the sculptor? What did the sculptor see in the painter? These questions are answered through an extensive examination of the exchange of artwork and correspondence between the two artists, maintained throughout their lives across two continents despite the difficulties of war.
This book and the exhibition it accompanies are about their extraordinary friendship and the early years of their careers.
