Mr. Seidman thought of himself as an artist at heart. He made mobiles for friends and family, drawing inspiration from Alexander Calder, whom he met during the commission of â€œLa Grande Vitesse,â€ in 1969.
â€œHe said he had been worried about inviting me to his studio, because Iâ€™d see how he did his work,â€ Mr. Seidman said. â€œBut after he saw my mobiles, he decided it was O.K. if I came to visit. I guess he didnâ€™t consider me a threat. But then again, he hasnâ€™t seen my latest work.â€ - L. William "Bill" Seidman (New York Times, May 13, 2009)
