With works by Stanley Brouwn, Sol LeWitt, Daan van Golden and Konrad Lueg
In the presentation Brancusi and Co, all works by Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) in the museum’s collection are on display. Brancusi is regarded as the pioneer of modern sculpture. It is a playful presentation with 18th and 19th century Chinese philosophers’ stones and with works by Stanley Brouwn, Sol LeWitt, Daan van Golden and Konrad Lueg.
The presentation came about in connection with the recent acquisition of an exceptional drawing by the artist from a private collector. The drawing consists of the highly stylized head of a woman, executed in pencil on coarse paper.
The acquisition of the drawing further enriches the context in which the Brancusi sculpture acquired by the museum in 1995, Le Commencement du monde from 1924, can be displayed. The collection now contains two sculptures, two drawings and four photographs by the artist, which focus on the theme of the abstracted head.
Brancusi had an almost obsessive interest in the oval and ovoid form, as a symbol of the cosmic, the beginning of all creativity.
