Brancusi's Endless column ensemble : Târgu Jiu, Romania ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 168 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

5 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957 by Friedrich Teja Bach( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in French and English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In twentieth-century sculpture, one name towers above all others: Romanian-born Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). This book accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Brancusi's sculpture, drawings, and photographs, organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Profusely illustrated throughout, with photographs by the artist and images culled from a wide range of archival sources, it is the most definitive work yet published on this influential artist. The authors provide a detailed reassessment of Brancusi's work, incorporating and extending the profound revisions in scholarship that have been taking place since the last major retrospective in 1969-70

Brancusi, film, photographie : images sans fin by Constantin Brancusi( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pour Brancusi, la sculpture n'existe que perçue dans l'espace, transformée par la lumière. Son travail est un processus continu de variations et d'échos. En mettant en évidence ces multiples relations, cette mobilité constante, les images photographiques et filmiques qu'il réalisa dans les années 1920-1930 constituent des documents uniques mais aussi de véritables outils d'analyse et de création. Sous quatre parties, le livre présente plus de 170 photographies et bandes-film. On découvre d'abord la vie de l'atelier - l'artiste, ses modèles et amis comme Man Ray. Viennent ensuite les oeuvres reproduites, seules ou en relation, sous différents points de vue et éclairages. La troisième partie pourrait s'intituler le travail de la reproduction ; elle rassemble des images d'objets industriels et des recherches, à partir d'une même prise de vue, sur les recadrages, les formats et les tirages. La dernière partie est consacrée à des études de matière, de mouvement, et se clôt sur la construction de la Colonne sans fin. Les bandes-film et nombre de photographies sont ici publiées pour la première fois. Trois essais éclairent les relations entre le travail sur l'image et la pratique sculpturale de Brancusi. Ils sont complétés par un inventaire thématique inédit des photographies et une première description des films, restés jusqu'à présent invisibles." P. [4] of cover
