My impression of Alexander Calder was of mobiles rather like this Chef d’orchestre displayed in the Turbine Hall. I had never seen the ethereal mobiles on show in Room 8 – mobiles that move gently in the air movement generated by us.

Nor had I seen his fabulous wire sculptures, lit so that their shadows fall on the wall behind.

Lots of Calder souvenirs for sale – the most expensive in this display cabinet set against the back drop of St Paul’s Cathedral and the City of London.
