Brâncuși left is home country, Romania, for Paris in 1904, where he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and worked in the studios of established artists. Brâncuși’s work is characterized by an unwavering dedication to simplifying forms and capturing the essence of his subjects. His creations often melded human, animal, and abstract elements, transcending conventional representation. The sculptor’s approach to materials was equally revolutionary. Brâncuși was known for his craftsmanship and his use of materials such as marble, wood, and bronze. His avant-garde approach to sculpture positioned him as a pioneer of modernism and a key figure in the development of abstract art. In his later years, Brâncuși divided his time between Paris and his studio in the French countryside. He continued to create groundbreaking pieces, refining his aesthetic and philosophical ideals.
