Catalogue Note

“Calder’s jewelry may be seen as a sort of Surrealistic strategy to entrap the wearer into participating in an art performance, even to become bewitched. To wear the jewelry is to induce dreams and to become metamorphosed. It is typical of Calder and his art to be more allusive than first meets the eye.” Mark Rosenthal in: Alexander S.C. Rower, Ed., Calder Jewelry, New York 2007, p. 67
