About Constantin Brancusi

 Q:   Ask a Question about About Constantin Brancusi       
Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) was Romanian sculptor, active in Paris from 1904, a pioneer of abstract forms and conceptual art.

He was one of the first sculptors in the 20th century to carve directly from his material, working with marble, granite, wood, and other materials.

He developed increasingly simplified natural or organic forms, such as the sculpted head that gradually came to resemble an egg (Sleeping Muse 1910, Musee National d'Art Moderne, Paris).

By the 1930s he had achieved monumental simplicity with structures of simple repeated forms (Endless Column and other works in Tirgu Jiu public park, Romania).

Brancusi was revered by his contemporaries, and remains a seminal figure in 20th-century sculpture.
