Brancusi

Brancusi

Summary

Considered a pioneer of modernism, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture. Born in Romania, he earned his notoriety only after moving to Paris. This catalog presents newly discovered works of art, created by the artist in the beginning of his career, while still in school, in his patriarchal country. Every piece of art is introduced with the legal based documentation and more. Overall, the catalog represents in detail a part of Brâncuși's life, a part that was omitted by history.

Collaboration

The design process was the result of a thoroughly collaboration with the team of art experts and critics, specialized in brancusiology.

 

Artworks

8 new pieces make the headline of the catalog. Every piece is presented from different perspectives and all details about material, name and dimensions are noted.

Interior

The art book consists of two parts - art critic and documentation & the works of art. Having a generous format. I chose a special formatting type for text, in order to make reading easy and pleasant. For the chapter covers, red was added, to bring more vitality to the almost monochromatic content.

Colors

The palette is a simple one,  with the purpose to highlight  the artworks.
