Calder | Gouaches

13 May - 04 June 2022

Opera is delighted to present an exhibition of Alexander Calder’s gouache paintings on paper. The artist developed a passion for gouaches and works on paper early in his career, appreciating the ease at which he could manipulate the surface and experiment on a smaller scale than his mobiles and sculptures. The nine works on display in an immersive scenography demonstrate Calder’s mastery of line, solid balance of composition and eye for colour.
