The unknown portrait of brancusi

Solo exhibition by Raluca Popa, curated by Simona Nastac

Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) was one of the pioneering figures of modern sculpture and one of the most original artists of the twentieth-century. His serenely simplified sculptures ‘Bird in Space’, ‘Mlle Pogany’ or ‘Sleeping Muse’ are unanimously recognised as icons of modernism and looking at his art now, it is almost impossible not to see him as a precursor to surrealism, and to more recent work as diverse as that of Hepworth and Moore, Anish Kapoor and Carl Andre, Donald Judd and Louise Bourgeois. He was a remarkably protean figure, also a close friend to leading avant-garde artists such as Amedeo Modigliani, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and Erik Satie among others, yet he remains one of the most elusive, with an aura of otherness still intriguing today.
