The prints portion of the sale will kick-off at 12 p.m.; paintings at 4 p

Calder was an artistic “jack of all trades.” He worked in metal, from jewelry to large-scale public works; he made paintings as a theatrical set designer; and he was also a successful lithographer. His wit and energy are realized in the current work, lot 617, which is registered with the Calder Foundation and is estimated to be worth $30,000 to $50,000. Other sculptures featured in the scale are works by Cyrus Dallin, Paul Manshi, and Harriet Frishmuth.
