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.

About the Author:

Margaret Calder Hayes was born in Paris, France in 1896 and died in Berkeley, California in 1988. Her life story is told in her well written family memoir, Three Alexander Calders. She married Kenneth Hayes, raised two sons, Calder and Kenneth, and was active in many community endeavors throughout California. She was instrumental in the development of the UC Berkeley Art Museum and conducted art classes for children in her home for some 18 years.

Review:

A marvelous & timely memoir on important family values and artistry. -- From the Publisher
