Desire: Sculpture, modern, retrospective

Designed on the occasion of the complete transfer of the Brancusi workshop as part of the renovation work at the Center Pompidou, this presentation offers a unique opportunity to rediscover the work of this immense 20th century artist in a new light.

The workshop, a true jewel of the Museum's collection since its bequest to the French State in 1957, constitutes the central core of this retrospective, bringing together previously unpublished sets of sculptures thanks to important collaborations with internationally renowned museums.

Who is Constantin Brancusi?

Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) was a Romanian sculptor, considered one of the pioneers of modern sculpture. Born in a Romanian village, Brancusi studied at the Bucharest School of Fine Arts before moving to Paris in 1904. In Paris, he attended the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts and was influenced by artists such as Auguste Rodin.

Brancusi developed a distinctive sculptural style characterized by the simplification of forms and abstraction. He was known for sculpting his works with clean shapes, eliminating any superfluous details. His sculptures were often made using materials such as marble, wood and bronze.

Among his most famous works, we find "The Kiss" (1907-1908), a stylized depiction of a couple kissing, and "The Endless Column" (1918), an abstract wooden sculpture. Brancusi believed in the search for the very essence of forms, and his artistic approach exerted a significant influence on the development of modern sculpture.

Brancusi's studio, which was bequeathed to the French state upon his death in 1957, has been reconstructed at the Center Pompidou in Paris, where it is presented as a work of art in its own right, reflecting the vision of the artist on the importance of space and presentation in artistic perception.
