Alexander Calder: Flying Dragon
This poster featuring Flying Dragon (1975) was produced in 2021, in conjunction with the public installation of Alexander Calder’s sculpture at Place Vendôme in Paris to mark the opening of Gagosian’s new gallery at rue de Castiglione. Flying Dragon—among the last of the monumental works Calder made—exemplifies the artist’s capacity to invest a powerful visual dynamism in his work regardless of scale. While static, the striking sculpture transforms when viewed from different angles. Constructed from sheet metal, it is physically weighty but appears delicate due to its limited points of contact with the ground.
