Catalogue Note

"Sandy Calder—an artist who combines philosophy and fun, precision and abandon, vagaries and permanence in his own personal brand of sculpture. Who else has given us so much delight with so little pomposity? Who else can make snowflakes tremble and an acoustic ceiling float in cloud-like majesty? No other American artist has so brilliantly mirrored the optimism and sly humor of our country."

Katherine Kuh cited in Exh. Cat., New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, Calder's Universe, 1976, p. 25
