It isMoreThis book presents the Circus and examples of the many circus sculptures in wire, wood, and bronze, as well as the circus paintings, drawings, and gouaches, and various other sculptures that relate to Calders longtime interest in the circus. It is divided into three parts: the Circus years- color stills from the Pathé film of a Circus performance- and the Circus figures themselves, photographed by Marvin Schwartz and shown with related pieces in all the media that Calder has used. The occasional quotations that accompany the illustrations - Calders remarks about circus things - are the only text in the book. An appendix includes a chronology of events in Calders career that relate to the Circus, detailed captions for each illustration, and an annotated bibliography.
