Alexander Calder is justifiably famous for his delicate, airy, and often colorful stabiles and mobiles. We saw some originals "in Paris, dahling,"and in Switzerland, another artist tonally similar but distinct from Calder was Hans Peter Kamm.
Calder “The sense of motion in painting and sculpture has long been considered as one of the primary elements of the composition.” - http://www.artquotes.net/masters/calder/alexander-calder-quotes.htm http://www.writedesignonline.com/Prompts/Calder.html
"Just as one can compose colors, or forms, so one can compose motions."--Alexander Calder
