Friend and colleague to Marcel Duchamp, Fernand Léger and Amedeo Modigliani, among others, Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957) was one of the seminal figures of modern sculpture. His marriage of folk motifs from his native Romania with abstract forms produce some of the masterpieces of 20th-century art. The Guggenheim dusts off it’s considerable holdings of Brancusi’s work for this show, which include the photos he shot of his own sculptures and studio surroundings—images that are as sublime as the sculpture for which he’s celebrated.
