Beautiful photographs by Brancusi (1876-1957) of his work in his studio are on show at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery in Chelsea. I think of him as a modern icon and it's a bit surprising to see that he was born in 1876! But I guess "modern" is old now...
I've always liked a lot of his sculptures but seeing them in his studio makes them look even better.
So beautiful.. I never realized he had studied shortly with Rodin, and was introduced to photography by Steichen and Man Ray. You can read more about him here.
And he was pretty good looking too, wasn't he?
The show is on til 6/23.
