Catalogue Note

© Succession Brancusi - All rights reserved (Adagp), 2018 vintage silver print, mounted on card

This image shows some of the most important works of Brancusi. Clearly Brancusi is focusing on this wonderful bronze in the center, the Danaïde. The background reveals a wide column of the Door of Kiss in Târgu Jiu garden while in the foreground, on the right, we can see the head of Leda rising from the marble blocks and a rare French Little Girl.

This rare print of the studio of Constantin Brancusi is, to our knowledge, unique. A work in the collection of Centre Pompidou shows the Danaïde scultpture from a different angle.
