by Carmen Gimenez,Matthew Gale


A slender, attractively designed book, Constantin Brancusi: The essence of things examines the artist's folkloric cultural and artistic . Carmen Gimènez is curator of 20th-century art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Matthew Gale is a curator at Tate Modern.

Along the way, the essayists attempt to refine the standard view of Brancusi as the poster boy for "truth to materials"-—the self-reliant peasant who struck a blow for modernism around 1907 by cutting directly into the stone block and responding to its unique qualities.

This book accompanied the exhibition at 2 museums: Tate Modern, London, Jan. 29 - May 23, 2004, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, June 10 - Sept. 19. 2004. Each of the 37 Brancusi sculptures in the exhibition is reproduced in color, beginning on p. 72. The exhibition also included a number of b&w photographs, which are listed on p. 141 & reproduced throughout the pages of this book.

The essay titles are 1. "Endless Brancusi" by Carmen Gimenez, 2. "Brancusi: An equal among rocks, trees, people, beasts & plants" by Matthew Gale, 3. "Reconfiguring Brancusi's formative years: Hobita - Craiova - Bucharest" by Sanda Miller, 4. "The road to Damascus" by Alexandra Parigoris, and 5. "When we are no longer children: Brancusi's wooden sculpture c. 1913-25" by Jon Wood.

An unusual feature of this book is a Chronology, compiled by Matthew Gale, of events in Brancusi's life, in the art world, & in the world.

P.S. My hardcover has a dust jacket with the white marble Sleeping Muse, like the front of the paperback. It does not show the bronze Maiastra, like the Amazon info. webpage. (That photo of the bronze is on p. 121.)
