Celebrating Constantin Brancusi’s Visionary Sculptures, New York
Paris-based Constantin Brâncuși (1876 – 1957) was a Romanian-born sculptor who as a child displayed an aptitude for woodcarving. After showing remarkable talent already at a young age, Brancusi moved to Paris in 1903, where he was welcomed by the community of artists and intellectuals brimming with new ideas.
Brancusi believed in revealing the essence of things rather than merely copying outward appearance. In 1913, Brancusi, exhibited alongside Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, and Fernand Léger at the Armory Show which kick started his career.
Artists Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Jeff Koons and Richard Serra were incredibly influenced by Brancusi’s oeuvre and impact on modern sculptural history.
This year we celebrate one hundred years after Constantin Brancusi’s debut at The Armory Show with Brancusi New York 1913-2013 displaying five bronze sculptures at the Paul Kasmin Gallery.
The exhibition runs until the 25th of January, 2014 at the 515 West 27th Street Paul Kasmin gallery’s location in New York. More info here.
