Featuring over 90 works by Alexander Calder (1898-1976) including paintings, mobiles, stabiles, jewelry, domestic objects and furniture, plus six monumental outdoor sculptures, this catalog vividly illustrates a walkthrough of an ambitious exhibition in the British countryside in Somerset. Drawing a parallel with Calder's longtime home and studio in Roxbury, Connecticut, it includes many previously unseen works.

An essay by Jessica Holmes focuses on the artist's handcrafted domestic objects, offering insight into Calder's life and inventive practice. Susan Braeuer Dam focuses on Calder's move to Roxbury in 1933 and the shifts in his work, drawing upon themes of nature, process and monumentality, specifically as related to the 1934 sculptures surveyed here.
