This week, Stephanie Dueñas and Russell Shoemaker tread through the fascinating history behind the sculpture work “Silver Bedhead” from 1946 by Alexander “Sandy'“ Calder, mobile master, commissioned by Peggy Guggenheim, a woman whose art addiction influenced Modern Art History of the last century.

They go back to the beginning of Peggy and Sandy’s lives when each experienced serendipitous moments that changed the trajectory of their lives, their paths running parallel to one another until art brought them together resulting in the one-of-a-kind work discussed in today’s episode.

Topics include secret bookstores, a hefty inheritance, a miniature circus, baguette bopping, and Stephanie’s encounter with a too mobile mobile.
