Modern Art Print by artist Calder, signed and numbered
For your consideration this Modern Art Print signed by artist Calder; marked 71 (maybe title?); double matted in red and black mats; completed with a silver frame. It is pencil numbered 176/300, no pencil signature. There is a slight pinhole crack in the upper right hand corner under the frame.
Waiting for confirmation from the Calder Foundation to verify if this print if one from Alexander Calder, or a different Calder.

"The Calder Foundation is not currently examining or offering information regarding editioned works on paper, lithographs, prints, or posters. We are currently working toward the release of a catalogue of the graphic works of Alexander Calder and information about these works will become available through our website, www.calder.org, as our project continues. "
If it is from Alexander Calder, here is a very brief summary of his history: Alexander Calder changed the course of modern art with his three-dimensional kinetic sculptures, which Marcel Duchamp named “mobiles.” Resonating with tenets of Futurism, Constructivism, and early non-objective painting, Calder’s mobiles consist of boldly colored abstract shapes, which are made from industrial materials and hang in lyrical balance. Calder was an international phenomenon during his lifetime. He won the grand prize for sculpture at the 1952 Venice Biennale, where he represented the United States. He earned the French Legion of Honor and the American Presidential Medal of Freedom, among other honors. Calder has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Rijksmuseum, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, and the Museo Reina Sofía. His work regularly sells for eight figures on the secondary market. Though Calder is best known for his mobiles, his diverse practice also encompassed standing sculpture, painting, set and costume design, large-scale public installation, and jewelry-making.
