Alexander Calder. Multum in Parvo

The number of art galleries is New York is simply overwhelming and I rarely see something I really-really like. Things were different today, I'm feeling super inspired after visiting Dominique Lévy gallery in uptown. They are showing a collection of 40 miniature works by American sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1973). Taking its title, MULTUM IN PARVO, from the Latin phrase meaning “much in little,” the exhibition explores the ways in which Alexander Calder’s most diminutive works, ranging from thumb-sized to thirty inches tall, achieve monumental impact.
I have always loved Calder's monumental kinetic sculptures and seeing so many of them in mini versions all together was even better.
