Summary note
The sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and the painter Joan Miró (1893-1983) met in Paris in 1928 and became lifelong friends. This deluxe book places the mobile sculptures of Calder alongside the poetical paintings of Miro and provides fresh insights into the visual dialogue between these two artists. The slipcased box includes three books: one book on Miro's Constellations, one on Calder's Constellations, and one on their relationship with a shared chronology, correspondence, and photographs. Acquavella Galleries reunites all twenty-three works of Miro's Constellations, a series that has special significance in the artist's oeuvre. Exhibitions: Pace Gallery, New York (20.04. - 30.06.2017) / Acquavella Galleries, New York (20.04. -26.05.2017).
