The studio of the late Alexander Calder. You can see one of his sculptures in red on the lawn. Calder and his wife Louisa bought the old farmhouse for $3,500 in 1933, in Roxbury, Connecticut which was becoming a mecca for the avant-garde. It is still owned by Calder’s estate. The Calders’ was a place where European e´migre´s, intellectuals, and bohemians discussed the political situation in Europe, practiced their French, and got very drunk. One day, I was visiting a farmer just up the road from Calder’s house and I noticed something hanging above the kitchen table and it was a wonderful Calder mobile. The farmer told me that Sandy, as he called Calder, used to come there and play poker with him. It must have been a very fun time! Alexander Calder died in New York City on November 11, 1976, and is buried in Roxbury.
