Romanian Constantin Brancusi
b. Feb. 21, 1876, Hobita, Romania
d. March 16, 1957, Paris, France


"Pioneer of modern abstract sculpture whose works in bronze and marble are characterized by a restrained, elegant geometry of form and exquisite finishing. A passionate wood-carver, he frequently carved prototypes for works later executed in other materials and produced numerous wood sculptures, often with a folk flavour. "The Kiss" (1908) was his first major work. From 1912 he produced numerous increasingly abstract sculptures of birds in flight."
