Alexander Calder (1898 - 1976)
A landscape of pyramids in bright hues of red, orange, blue, black, and white. These pyramids vary in size and color, and are outlined in Calder's signature bold, black lines.
The bold dark horizontal lines across the top of the work create a sense of depth, space, and volume, illustrating the artist's technical skill and mastery of technique in transforming basic shapes and colors into a complex interaction of balance and visual imagery.
