Alexander Calder is still considered to be one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century, known for his colorful and whimsical abstract public pieces and his innovative kinetic pieces that were powered by motors or air currents. Although more commonly known for his sculpture, Calder was also described to have a restless creative spirit who dabbled in many forms of art, such as; printmaking, miniatures, children's book illustrations, jewelry designs, political posters and many more. He was honored in 1998 by the US Postal Service with a set of five stamps. His work is still appreciated and collected around the world. Calder was quoted while explaining his view of art, saying, "How can art be realized? Out of volumes, motion, spaces bounded by the great space, the universe. Out of different masses, tight, heavy, middling—indicated by variations of size or color—directional line—vectors which represent speeds, velocities, accelerations, forces, etc. . . .—these directions making between them meaningful angles, and senses, together defining one big conclusion or many. Spaces, volumes, suggested by the smallest means in contrast to their mass, or even including them, juxtaposed, pierced by vectors, crossed by speeds. Nothing at all of this is fixed. Each element able to move, to stir, to oscillate, to come and go in its relationships with the other elements in its universe. It must not be just a fleeting moment but a physical bond between the varying events in life. Not extractions, But abstractions. Abstractions that are like nothing in life except in their manner of reacting."
