McGovern for McGovernment (Signed by BOTH Calder and George McGovern), 1972
Own a piece of US Political history! This is one of the only prints on the market today, that is not only hand signed and numbered by Calder, but also, exceptionally, inscribed and signed by George McGovern. In 1972, Alexander Calder was commissioned by the Democratic National Committee to create a series of prints as a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern. This is one of them. Calder was fiercely opposed to the Vietnam War, so like many artists, he supported the Quixotic, but ultimately doomed Presidential candidacy of the ultra-liberal George McGovern. Indeed, despite Calder's best artistic efforts, Richard Nixon went on to win the election in a landslide. This is a historic print and McGovern's liberal, anti-war message resonates with Americans to this very day. Pencil signed and numbered by Calder. Inscribed and signed in ink by George McGovern.
