BIRTHDAY BOHEMIAN ….. Alexander Calder
American artist and sculptor Alexander Calder was most famous for inventing the mobile. He was born on July 22 1898 when the Sun was in the last degree of Cancer, which gave him a great love of home, family and children. With his Moon and Venus in Virgo he had an earthy, practical side and, with his Mars in Gemini, he was extremely versatile … his creative output included paintings, sculptures, mobiles, stage sets, lithographs, toys, tapestries and jewellery, plus he also designed carpets.
The photos above show his beautiful home and studio in Connecticut … a unique and magical place that gives us an insight into his colourful, creative and chaotic mind!
