Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is a fairly well known painter, but I have included this work as there is some scarce footage of he and Kiki of Montparnasse during the production of the above work, circa 1929.
Collected here are works by artists who are forgotten, under appreciated, or little known, as well as news, reviews and ephemera from the corners of art history. Works of startling quality can be found beyond the big names in the visual arts, whether it is just one exceptional work, an area of an artists oeuvre, or an entire career worth re-examining.
