Digitization Projects: “Alexander Calder’s Expansive Archive Is Digitised in a New Platform”
From The Art Newspaper:

Their efforts are being released today on an encyclopaedic digital platform that includes extensive databases as well as editorialised content, allowing Calder’s work and history to be “accessible to thousands of people instead of dozens of people”, says Alexander S.C. Rower, the president of the foundation and the artist’s grandson.
