Alexander Calder

1898 - 1976 / American

Calder and Zika Ascher most likely met through mutual acquaintances while Calder was living and working in Saché, France. A friendship developed between Calder and his wife, Louisa, and Zika and Lida. Zika and Lida visited Calder at his home in Roxbury, Connecticut and in Saché, on their holidays after the hectic Paris couture shows. Calder was the only American artist to participate in the Ascher Squares project.
