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 eight works on display in an immersive scenography demonstrate Calder's mastery of line, solid balance of composition and eye for colour.
The first inspiration I ever had was the cosmos, The planetary system.
Above all, art should be fun.
