    Brancusi: Carving the Essence

    About this exhibition

    The sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), who was born in Romania, is known as a pioneering artist who, through his exploration of pure form, carved out new territory in twentieth-century sculpture, post Rodin. This exhibition makes his sculptures its core in weaving together, through his two-dimensional works such as fresco, tempera, drawing, and photographs, showcasing the totality of Brancusi’s creative activities. It is the first exhibition at an art museum in Japan to present Brancusi comprehensively. The ninety exhibits include over twenty sculptures on loan from the Brancusi Estate in Paris and museums and other collections in Japan and abroad, plus paintings, and photography.
