QUATRE LANCES, BY ALEXANDER CALDER
Mareterra is a place that embraces the life-enhancing forces of nature. So it is entirely fitting that ‘Quatre lances’, a major work by that master of modern sculptural art, Alexander Calder be returned home to this dynamic new community. Fashioned from bolted-steel plate, it was purchased by Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966, with Alexander Calder and his wife Louisa attending the unveiling. Now it has returned to Monaco, where it forges a strong, enduring connection between the arts of man and nature in its new home in Mareterra.
