Constantin Brancusi

“Matter must continue its natural life when modified by the hand of the sculptor.”

Constantin Brancusi
B.Feb 19th 1876-Hobita, Romania
D.March 16th 1957-Paris,France

Explaining that “The artist should know how to dig out the being that is within matter,” Brancusi sought to create sculptures that conveyed the true essence of his subjects, be they animals, people, or objects by concentrating on highly simplified forms free from ornamentation. While many regarded his art as abstract, the artist disagreed; he insisted on the representational nature of his works, asserting that they disclosed a fundamental, often concealed, reality.
