Google Goes Calder

Alexander Calder, Loops on Gray and Red, gouache, 1968. Sold for $40,800 on June 9, 2011.

What have you Googled today? Whatever you were searching, you undoubtedly noticed today's movable logo, an homage to Alexander Calder on his 113th birthday. The logo's letters have been abstracted, replaced by a whimsical mobile in a combination of Calder's and Google's shared primary colors and the addition of the traditional Google green. The American sculptor, painter and printmaker is a steady presence in Swann's biannual Contemporary Art auctions.
