alexander calder

my apologies baronessa for being awol.
have been busy with Belle Heir and had the lovely AV visiting here.
we did make it to the Whitney where there is an
Alexander Calder show on including these whimsical wire portraits

and a great little film
of him performing his circus.
there is a clip here for you and cy to enjoy.

the circus pieces all so beautifully handcrafted by him and also on display. really fantastic!

we then headed over to the Carlyle hotel for a martini at Bemelman's Bar where the Madeline creator was commissioned to decorate and has created some magical murals in the space.
we commented on how much you would like it and toasted you.
