L’atelier Brâncuși

Pioneering Modernism

On a recent trip to Paris we made our way to one of the city’s visual gems, the contemporary interpretation of Romania-born artist Constantin Brâncuși’s studio.
All of his works, tools, fixtures and what ever else was in his design space, accumulated during his years in Paris from 1904 until 1957, was donated to the French state according to his own wishes upon his passing.
After having found new locations over the years, the current exhibition and L’atelier Brâncuși is housed in a modernist building in the piazza opposite to Centre Pompidou, conceived by architect Renzo Piano in 1997.
