Romunsko-francoski kipar, eden najvplivnejših kiparjev 20. stoletja, pionir abstraktnega kiparstva reduciranih oblik. Bil je mojster stilizacije organskih oblik.

Poljub (1908, kamen), Dremajoča muza (1909/10, marmor), Maiastra (1912, marmor), Gospodična Pogany (1913, bron), Ptič v prostoru (1919, poliran bron). V parku romunskega mesta Târgu Jiu je v letih 1937 in 1938 postavil skupino kipov, ki so bili posvečeni padlim romunskim borcem iz prve svetovne vojne, kamniti kip Vrata zaročencev, kamnito Mizo tišine in kovinski kip Neskončni stolp. Brancusi je študiral v Bukarešti, Münchnu in Parizu, kjer je od leta 1904 dalje tudi živel. Umrl je v Parizu leta 1957, svoj atelje in kipe v njem je zapustil pariškemu Musée national d'art moderne.

Constantin Brancusi : sculpting the essence of things / [text] James Pearson. - 3rd ed. - Maidstone : Crescent Moon Publishing, 2011. - 160 str. : ilustr. ; 24 cm. - (Sculptors series)
"Constantin Brancusi is one of the greatest of all sculptors, and a key sculptor of the modern era, with Auguste Rodin and Pablo Picasso. Brancusi's influence can be seen in a wide range of Western sculptors, including Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Henry Moore, Jean Arp, Barbara Hepworth, Minimalists and land artists. This new book studies the religious and mythical dimensions of Constantin Brancusi's distinctive scultpural forms, the 'eggs', 'fishes', 'heads' and 'columns'. His central quest was for the 'essence of things', which resulted in purifying a form until only the essence was left." --> na ov.  Bibliografija: str. 157-160

10. BRANCUSI, Constantin
Constantin Brancusi / [text] Sanda Miller. - London : Reaktion Books, 2010. - 173 str. : ilustr. ; 20 cm. - (Critical lives)
"Acknowledged as one of the major sculptors and avant-garde artists of the twentieth century, Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) also remained one of the most elusive. His mysterious nature was not only due to his upbringing in Romania - which, at the time, was still regarded by much of Europe as a backward country haunted by vampires and werewolves - but also because Brancusi was aware that myth and an 'aura of otherness' appealed to the public. This self-mythology is embodied in his white atelier in Montparnasse, Paris. In "Constantin Brancusi", Sanda Miller looks beyond the mythology of the artist to show us Constantin the Romanian student, as well as Brancusi the celebrated artist. Using new material, including private correspondence from Brancusi's archive in Paris, works from Romania, and Brancusi's own photos of his studio, the author weaves together and interprets a wealth of information, bringing to life his early years in Romania, his move to Paris and his years at his studio. She relates how his art scandalized the Paris salon, yet also explores how his work connects with the folk art of his homeland. She also provides colourful evocations of Brancusi's relationships with colleagues, dealers, friends and lovers. An innovative reassessment of Brancusi's life and work, Sanda Miller's perceptive book allows Brancusi to take his rightful place among the most important of the intellectual personalities who shaped twentieth-century modernism." --> na ov.
