The twenty-seven-year-old Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncusi walked from Bucharest to Paris in 1903 and 1904 as a preparation and prelude to becoming the most important sculptor of the twentieth century.

It is a film to be seen from an artist's point of view: concentrating on ideas, materials, forms and textures taken from the sculptor's ... Written by Cinatura

Did You Know?


People often mistake the pronunciation of the name Brancusi. The last 'i' is not pronounced as 'i' but morphs the preceding 's' into an 'sh' sound. Correct pronunciation is thus 'Brancush'. See more »
