Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976)

Alexander Calder was born in 1898. His father was the sculptor Alexander Stirling Calder and his mother a painter. Calder was encouraged to create, and from the age of eight he always had his own workshop wherever the family lived. For Christmas in 1909, Calder presented his parents with two of his first sculptures.

Harry Bertoia (1915-1978)

The multi-talented designer and sculptor Harry Bertoia came to America from Italy in 1930. He studied at the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts and Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he later established the metalworking department and where he began making organically formed jewelry in silver and copper.
