Reflecting on the work of one of my favorite sculptors, Constantin Brâncusi (1876-1957), a Romanian artist who was a pioneer of simplicity. For most of his work, Brâncusi took a set of themes — like heads, birds, or fish — and stripped them down to the abstract, leaving the emphasis on the purity of form.  These are some favorite examples.
