Alexander Calder is considered one of the most well-known artists of the twentieth century. Primarily a sculptor, Calder created several different abstract works of art. He is most famous for his sculptures known as mobiles. Mobiles are balanced arrangements that move using wind currents. One such work, "Black Cascade, 13 Verticals," is pictured on one of these stamps.
