About Calvin Albert

View Profile »

CALVIN ALBERT was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1918. He studied in Chicago with Archipenko and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy before moving to New York with his wife in 1947. He taught at several schools before going to Pratt Institute in 1950. There Calvin was a Professor of Art and Head of the Graduate Sculpture program. He retired as PROFESSOR EMERITUS OF PRATT INSTITUTE in 1985 and later moved to Florida. Before Calvin peacefully passing on June 4, 2007 he lived a fulfilled life.

The artist’s large charcoal drawings and sculpture take inspiration from the human form, architecture, and landscape. The works are abstract, revealing only essential elements of each motif. The sculpture, in bronze, pewter, and various alloys often combines figuration with architectonic form. He was a prominent SCULPTOR and an ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST, although he walked his own line between representation and abstraction. His figures have muscular form; and simultaneously have serenity and a tension. Powerful – majestic – mysterious works! Calvin was a sculptor of enormous range and integrity! He combined both tools and hand to develop his geometric element of distortion from life-like to emotions!
