Alexander Calder, Untitled, 1948. Painted sheet metal and wire; 26 x 26 x 5 1/2 in. The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. Gift from the estate of Katherine S. Dreier, 1953.

We blogged last July when friends Alexander Calder and Joan MirĂ³ appeared along our spiral staircase, and now they’re back! But this time, the pairing includes Calder’s 1948 Untitled standing mobile, one I haven’t seen in person before. It’s a delightful and delicate discovery as one rounds the stairs to the second floor of the Goh Annex.
