Derrière Le Miroir abstraction by Alexander Calder
Alexander Calder was an American artist best known for his mobiles and suspended sculptures. His biomorphic forms recall the Surrealism of Joan Miró, with curved lines, geometric shapes, and soft angles.
French for “Behind the Mirror,” Derrière Le Miroir was a publication that ran from 1946 to 1982, featuring prints by the era’s most celebrated Modernists at a fraction of their usual cost. Produced by Galerie Maeght in Paris, the publication was dedicated to making art widely accessible at a time when many exiled artists and creative thinkers had just returned to France at the end of World War II.
