Constantin Brancusi Homage

Constantin Brancusi, The Newborn II, 1927, Stainless steel, National Museum of Modern Art
Homage! 139 years since the birth of Constantin Brancusi ( February 19, 1876 – March 16, 1957) - patriarch of modern sculpture 

“ Don't look for obscure formulas or mystery in my work. It is pure joy that I offer you. Look at my sculptures until you see them. Those closest to God have seen them” Brancusi said.

Endless Column

Designed by the famous modern artist Constantin Brancusi, the 98-foot Endless Column and its related sculpture ensemble, including the Table of Silence and Gate of the Kiss, were built as a memorial to those who died defending the town of Târgu-Jiu, Romania from the Germans during World War I. Beginning in 1998, WMF In partnership with the World Bank and the Government of Romania undertook conservation of the deteriorated column and development of a plan to restore the ensemble and integrate the work better with the surrounding landscape. The Endless Column was disassembled, cleaned, restored, and re-erected in December 2000. Attention then turned to the stone sculpture and its environment, which was surveyed and restored as much as possible to its original appearance. Today, the Endless Column, the Gate of the Kiss, and the Table of Silence are recognized as great works of twentieth-century outdoor sculpture.

The Table of Silence

The kiss gate (in Romanian, “Poarta sarutului”) is one of the masterpieces of Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi and resides in the main park of Tirgu-Jiu
