coat-of-arms Constantin Brancusi

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."
