9780839780175: Three Alexander Calders: A Family Memoir

This memoir was written about America's greatest artist, Alexander Calder, and his whole family of artists by his only sibling, Margaret Calder Hayes. This is a touching and enriching story of how artistic talent was encouraged and fostered within the Calder family. "Peggy" Hayes wrote this book while in her '80's. She reflects on the important aspects of her life with brother Sandy, her father, Alexander Sterling Calder and mother Nanette Lederer Calder (a talented artist in her own right) and her grandfather, Alexander Milne Calder. As an octogenarian, her perspective is expecially valuable.
