Brancusi in the Garden

source

There is one other thing I think of when I think of Romania and that is Brancusi.  In doing the research on Mogosoaia I ran across this wonderful photo of him and Man Ray in Edward Steichen’s garden at Voulangis.

Brancusi had sculpted his 'Column' directly from one of the poplar trees in the garden in 1926; when Steichen moved back to America Brancusi disassembled it, but not before he and Man Ray toasted its health.

Interesting! I gave my husband a reproduction of a Brancusi sculpture for our 25th wedding anniversary.
