More information about this artwork

Alexander Calder's lithograph series, "Stabiles," featured in Derrière le Miroir, No. 141, 1963, offers a unique glimpse into the artist's exploration of form and composition in two-dimensional space. Departing from the three-dimensional realm of his renowned sculptures, Calder translates his signature abstract aesthetic onto the flat surface of the lithographic print. Each print in the series showcases Calder's distinctive style characterized by bold, geometric shapes rendered with precision and dynamism. Through the use of vibrant colors and rhythmic lines, Calder imbues the "Stabiles" lithographs with a sense of movement and energy, inviting viewers into a world of playful abstraction.

In Derrière le Miroir, No. 141, Calder's "Stabiles" lithographs serve as visual meditations on the interplay between form, color, and space. Despite the inherent constraints of the lithographic medium, Calder's compositions exude a sense of spatial depth and sculptural presence, blurring the line between two and three-dimensional art. Each print in the series captivates the eye with its intricate arrangements of geometric shapes, inviting viewers to explore the harmonious balance between positive and negative space. Through the "Stabiles" lithographs, Calder demonstrates his mastery not only of sculpture but also of the graphic arts, leaving an indelible mark on the world of printmaking with his innovative approach and boundless creativity.
