Calder's Crown Jewels
Alexander Calder may be known for his celebrated mobiles, stabiles, paintings, and objects d'art, but it's his lesser known jewelry that proves the true gem. An exhibition dedicated to the subject is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art December 9, 2008 through March 1, 2009. Works included have graced the ears, wrists, and necks of Georgia O'Keefe, Peggy Guggenheim, and the wives of artists Marcel Duchamp and Joan Miró among others.
