About this Item

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the spine. Brancusi was a pioneer of modern sculpture and the author--a longtime friend of the artist--tells his story in the form of the novel. As a child Brancusi took to sculpture and carving like Mozart to the harpsichord. Son of Rumanian peasants, his own workshop at fifteen, he hewed boulders into calves and colts. An uninspired perfectionist at Bucharest's art academy, he bent himself to take one step beyond Rodin. This step of insight he discovered in cosmic occultism which influenced his life and revamped him into a "sainted" mystic. In Paris Brancusi is struck by the iconoclastic vitality of the Fauves and Impressionists and Primitivists. It is inspiring to watch Brancusi master and cast aside the schools. Finally, he becomes himself, passing from imitative to conceptual art. Bookseller Inventory # 25171
