I'm a day late and a dollar short,
but happy 135th
I would say he is the most famous Romanian,
I've always loved the period shots of his
crazy sick amazing studio.
You can of course still see
He always looked so crabby too.
Which I liked.
Don't mess with Constantin!
in the back or are you just glad to see me?
There are too many sculptures to
name all of them in this post.
Let's not forget it is 1914....
I mean come on,
Fuck all y'all!
You go Constany!
The light, the space,
it kind of defines the
"Plato", Mademoiselle Pogany",
and "Golden Bird"
This is the reconstructed studio
at the Pompidu.
"The Kiss", "The Chief",
and "The Sorceress"
"Cock" with versions of "Large Cock"
"King of Kings"
(And 4 versions of "Large Cock")
Jesus, am I gonna get some disappointed people when they click
on this Google image....!
This is the studio right after his death in 1957.
(Is that a smile I see?)
Brancusi chopping away at an "Endless Column".
I love this shot....
Brancusi at work in the studio,
with some terrific shadows.
"Bird in Space"
I could tell a boring story about when I was an
art student and was invited to a party the
Cliff Dwellers Club
and as we headed up the stairs
there was a bronze "Bird in Space"
towering over us as we headed up to the terrace.
They sold it I think.
"Self Portrait in the Studio"
I wonder what the rent was in 1925?
More versions of "Large Cock".
(I will never get tired of typing that!)
I think this is a repeat photo,
but come on,
who gets tired of
"Brancusi and Romanian Friend"
I KNOW he is smiling here!
"View of Studio"
There's a small black "Cock" on the mantle!
What a long post.
Time for a nap huh Constany?
