Brancusi by Pontus Hultén ( Book )
22 editions published between 1957 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Four decades after his death, Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) remains perhaps the most revered of 20th-century sculptors. In his mature work, Brancusi defined a modern sensibility: he created drastically simplified shapes, stripped of realistic detail. Although considered a pioneer of abstract art, Brancusi himself claimed, "I never seek to make what they call a pure or abstract form". Brancusi documents the life and work of this remarkably original and important modern artist with reproductions of his best-known works, a well-researched biographical outline, and a selection of the artist's own illuminating photographs of his work and studio

Brancusi's Endless column ensemble : Târgu Jiu, Romania ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Endless Column Ensemble, by famed Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), has been hailed as one of the great works of twentieth-century public art. Commissioned by the National League of Gorj Women to honour the soldiers who had defended the town of Targu Jiu against a German force in 1916, the tripartite ensemble, erected between 1937 and 1938, is composed of the Endless Column, a 30-metre-high column of zinc and brass-clad, cast-iron modules, and two stone monuments: the Table of Silence and Gate of the Kiss." "Over the years the elements took their toll on the sculpture, and although the Column's modules had been re-plated several times since its construction, by the 1990s it was in dire need of conservation. This illustrated volume celebrates the history of this extraordinary work of art and tells the story of its recent restoration, landscaping and presentation, supported in large part by the World Monuments Fund (WMF)."--BOOK JACKET

Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 by Friedrich Teja Bach ( Book )
16 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in French and English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"La matière ne doit pas être employée seulement pour servir le but de l'artiste, elle ne doit pas être sujette à une idée préconçue et à une forme préconçue. C'est la matière elle-même qui doit suggérer et le sujet et la forme; les deux doivent provenir de l'intérieur de la matière et ne pas lui être imposés de l'extérieur." Découvrez les univers des plus grands artistes du XXe et du XXIe siècle à partir d'une sélection d'oeuvres emblématiques principalement tirées de la prestigieuse collection du Musée national d'art moderne au Centre Pompidou, à Paris. Richement illustrés, les titres de cette série sont écrits par des spécialistes du sujet. Grâce à des textes clairs et vivants, ces ouvrages satisferont aussi bien les amateurs que ceux qui veulent faire leurs premiers pas dans le monde de l'art moderne et contemporain."--P. [4] of cover

Le motif de la colonne apparaît pour la première fois dans l'atelier de Brancusi vers 1917. D'abord inachevées et servant de support à des oeuvres, les colonnes, souvent en bois, vont peu à peu devenir des oeuvres de grandes dimensions dont les modules étirent leur rythme différemment selon la grandeur. Constantin Brancusi réalisera en Roumanie, en 1938, l'une de ses plus monumentales colonnes
