Calder by Matter is the first Cahiers d’Art publication since the re-launch of the Cahiers d’Art revue in October 2012.
Photographer and graphic designer Herbert Matter, a close friend of Alexander Calder, had the privilege of photographing the artist’s sculptures at different stages of their realization and capturing Calder at work in his studios and in his Roxbury, Connecticut, home. Calder by Matter offers a new perspective on the sculptor’s life and work, presenting over 300 photographs of the artist and his family, many of which are previously unpublished.
Calder by Matter has been published in direct collaboration with the Calder Foundation.
This black cloth-bound copy of Calder by Matter is presented in a handmade aluminum box with a portfolio of six numbered gelatin silver photographs. A Limited Edition of 250, it is signed by Alexander Matter, the son of the photographer, and Alexander S. C. Rower, the grandson of the artist.
