当亚历山大．卡得说：「我觉得金属线是最好的，」你知道这位画家与雕刻家是什么意思吗？卡得于1899年7月22日出生在宾州的劳顿 (Lawnton) ，他以独特的金属线结构与活动雕塑品 (以金属线将作品吊在半空中) ，彻底革新了雕刻界的风格。在卡得之前，没有人创造出这种风格的艺术品。卡得是一位着名的画家与雕刻家之子，他一开始是一位机械工程师，并且在这行做了很多年。西元1923年，卡得开始学习绘画课，并且成为一个商业艺术家，范围涵盖职业拳击赛与「国家警察报」 (National
Police Gazette) 等。西元1926年，卡得搬到巴黎，在1931年至1932年的冬天，他完成第一件活动雕塑品。
What did painter and sculptor Alexander Calder mean when he said "I think best in wire?" Born on July 22, 1899, in Lawnton, Pennsylvania, Calder revolutionized sculpture with his unique wire structures and mobiles--objects hanging from wires in midair. Before Calder, no one had created this type of art. The child of a well-known painter and sculptor, he started his career as a mechanical engineer and worked in that field for several years. In 1923, he began taking drawing lessons and eventually became a commercial artist covering prize fights and the circus for the National Police Gazette. In 1926 he moved to Paris, and in the winter of 1931-32, Calder made his first mobile.
