Large, brightly colored orbs surround bold, flourished text spelling out the words 'Sala Gaspar.' Calder (Pennsylvania, 1898 - New York, 1976) utilizes vibrant reds, blues, and yellows that contrast with the deep black of the text. The circles of color vary in size and shape and appear as if floating in outer space. Cluttered near the bottom, they branch out at the top, relaying a sense of gradual, upwards motion. The two words 'Sala Gaspar' link together, with the 'G' of 'Gaspar' gracefully cutting in between the 'l' and the 'a' of 'Sala.' The hook-shaped lines of the 'S' and the 'G' mimic each other in elegent, snaking curves. This text appears as the subject of the piece, centrally located and highlighted by the colorful circles around it.
This original color lithograph is hand signed by Alexander Calder (Pennsylvania, 1898 - New York, 1976) in pencil in the lower right and numbered from the total edition of 75 in pencil in the lower left; published by Sala Gaspar, Barcelona.
