"Calder solved the central problem of sculpture as modern art—namely how to eliminate the traditional base or pedestal that separated the spectator from the work. Once sculptors wished to produce artworks that were not public commissions but private expressions, they had to dispense with the pedestal to provide the sense of intimacy modernism demanded. In his inventive and unprecedented mobiles and stabiles, Calder was able to overcome the dilemma by hanging his works in space from the ceiling or setting them firmly on the ground in stable tripod structures that would remain upright and not tip over. This was no mean feat, and he was capable of achieving it because of his unique background."
Barbara Rose, "After the War: Transatlantic Calder" in Exh. Cat., London, The Pace Gallery, Calder: After the War, 2013, p. 10
