Abstract:

...The universality of Brancusi, his paradoxical simplicity and inclusiveness, have never been more strikingly demonstrated than in Sidney Geist's study of the artist. The interpenetration of the sculptor's life and his art, and the beautifully logical course of his artistic evolution are brilliantly revealed by Mr. Geist, who is a reowned authority on Brancusi, a professor of art at Vassar, and a sculptor himself. Every facet of the work, including the graphics, is handsomely displayed in the numerous, large-scale illustrations. In addition, this definitive new volume on Brancusi includes a chronology of the artist's life, a bibliography, a fully documented catalogue of Brancusi's complete oeuvre, and a unique concordance which collates the sculptures catalogued in all the major books on Brancusi currently in print. -- from front flap.
