Atelier Brancusi is a permanent exhibition featuring the work of Romanian born sculptor Constantin Brancusi, who lived and worked in Paris. It is part of the Centre Pompidou (or Beaubourg), located in the 4th arrondissement and home to the biggest Modern Art Museum in Europe. The gallery is a reproduction of the artist’s studio and contains a unique collection of sculptures, drawings, paintings and many photographic glass plates and original prints that were left to the French government after his death in 1957.
“La simplicité est la complexité résolue.” ― Constantin Brancusi
As a visitor, we really enjoyed the experience of being able to walk around the outside of the studio, being so close to the artist’s work, which is displayed following the exact layout of as in the original studio. If in Paris you shouldn’t miss this the chance to see Atelier Brancusi.
Brancusi learned photography from his close friend, Man Ray. It was an important medium in Brancusi’s documentary and artistic process and it has a significant presence throughout his studio.
