Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957)

Constantin Brancusi was born in Romania in 1876. At the age of 18, he left his native village to study art, more precisely sculpture on wood. He journeyed to Paris, in 1904, to work with Antonin Mercié and thus perfect his knowledge.

He finally received his diploma several years later, before exhibiting his works at the Autumn Salon of 1906. It's there that he met Auguste Rodin, who offered to let him work in his studio. Soon however, he made up his mind to pursue his own path and define his true artistic identity.

His work is characterized by the use of simple, bare forms, inspired by primitive art. He privileged models of birds and granted particular importance to polishing his work. Brancusi died in 1957 in Paris.
