George Goodstadt worked closely with Alexander Calder during the 1970’s when he was Calder’s American publisher. They produced many limited editions from Calder’s original gouaches. Quite often during those years, George traveled to France to have many of the limited editions printed in Paris and then onto Calder’s studio in Sache, France, where Calder hand signed the prints. They were then shipped back to the US for sale through Bank Street Atelier.


Most widely known for his mobiles, Alexander Calder sometimes took breaks from his sculptural endeavors to pursue the expression of ideas and forms in other mediums, such as gouache and watercolor. Later in his career, Calder began to explore the medium of lithography based on his gouaches. His paintings and prints capture that joy, intelligence and playfulness of his more well known sculptural works.


The prints we are offering here are the remaining few in our inventory from those early years.
