Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi's career spanned 50 years and pushed the art of sculpture toward a more abstract look. Brancusi showcased the natural elements of his materials, carving directly into wood and stone and polishing metal. The bases, often made of stacked objects, became part of the works themselves. This exhibit comprises 11 works from MoMA's collection alongside drawings and photographs and a range of archival materials.
