Product Description

Constantin Brancusi (PB)

In the evolution of modern sculpture few artists were as pivotal as Constantin Brancusi, who pioneered a shift from the traditional modeling of figures to the creation of objects that are “things in themselves.”

This new addition to the MoMA Artist Series presents ten sculptures by Brancusi from The Museum of Modern Art’s substantial collection of his work. The volume opens with Maiastra (1910-12), the first appearance of Brancusi’s bird motif, and concludes with Bird in Space (c. 1941), one of the last. With other examples of the artist’s recurring subjects—fish, columns, ovoid heads, crowning roosters—they illustrate his enduring engagement with form, material, and representation. An essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art.

This title is also available as an ebook, or from the iBookstore.
