亞歷山大‧卡得 (Alexander Calder) 出生

當亞歷山大‧卡得說:「我覺得金屬線是最好的,」你知道這位畫家與雕刻家是什麼意思嗎?卡得於1899722日出生在賓州的勞頓 (Lawnton) ,他以獨特的金屬線結構與活動雕塑品 (以金屬線將作品吊在半空中) ,徹底革新了雕刻界的風格。在卡得之前,沒有人創造出這種風格的藝術品。卡得是一位著名的畫家與雕刻家之子,他一開始是一位機械工程師,並且在這行做了很多年。西元1923年,卡得開始學習繪畫課,並且成為一個商業藝術家,範圍涵蓋職業拳擊賽與「國家警察報」 (National Police Gazette) 等。西元1926年,卡得搬到巴黎,在1931年至1932年的冬天,他完成第一件活動雕塑品。

What did painter and sculptor Alexander Calder mean when he said "I think best in wire?" Born on July 22, 1899, in Lawnton, Pennsylvania, Calder revolutionized sculpture with his unique wire structures and mobiles--objects hanging from wires in midair. Before Calder, no one had created this type of art. The child of a well-known painter and sculptor, he started his career as a mechanical engineer and worked in that field for several years. In 1923, he began taking drawing lessons and eventually became a commercial artist covering prize fights and the circus for the National Police Gazette. In 1926 he moved to Paris, and in the winter of 1931-32, Calder made his first mobile.
