Historic Images of Alexander Stirling Calder's Sculptures from the 1915 World's Fair

Last nights blog was a lesson, tonight we look at the pictures. Do you recognize the statue below? This is the Star Figure Calder sculpted for the 1915 World's Fair
Another sculpture of Calder's from the 1915 World's Fair. Notice the 2 figures just inside each horse. Canephorae!
The Fountain of Energy from the World's Fair had several sculptures with the aquatic motif that certainly influenced the figures on the Stone Barge.
This is one of the Calder's figures from the Fountain of Energy.
