When I was studying in Paris last year, I became a member of the Centre Pompidou, and had the oppportunity to visit often. One exhibit I enjoyed immensely was Alexander Calder's "Les annes Parisiennes 1926-1933". He has said: "I got the first impulse for doing things my way in Paris." Also: "I think best in wire." and "Just as one can compose colors, so can one compose motions."
