Brancusi and His World

This collection of essays is based on 35 years of Edith Balas’s scholarship of Constantin Brancusi, the twentieth century’s most influential sculptor. In her 1987 book, Brancusi and Romanian Folk Traditions, Balas convincingly demonstrated that Brancusi’s sculpture is rooted in his Romanian peasant origins, his artisan training, and the folklore familiar to him. The present collection of essays explores how this giant also related to his Parisian environment.
