Romanians celebrate “Brancusi Day”

“Brancusi Day” is celebrated on Sunday, February 19. Several Romanian embassies, consulates and cultural institutes abroad will organize events to mark this day, the Romanian Foreign Ministry informed.

At the same time, the Romanian National Museum of Art (MNAR) is hosting a document photos exhibition capturing, on one hand, the stages of placing Constantin Brancusi’s Endless Column in Targu-Jiu and, on the other hand, the atmosphere of the great sculptor’s atelier in Paris featuring Brancusi next to his sculptures. The photos are on display at MNAR at February 19-26.

According to the museum’s officials, the photos in the first section are printed after the clichés made by Ștefan Georgescu-Gorjan, the engineer who coordinated the placing of the monumental ensemble in Targu Jiu. The other photos represent a donation of the Pompidou Centre in Paris in 2006, printed after the original clichés made by Brancusi.

The exhibition is opened at Kretzulescu halls on Monday and Tuesday, from 10:00 to 18:00 and also on February 26 until 22:00.

The day of February 19 was declared “Brancusi Day” in 2015.

Romanian internationally renowned sculptor Constantin Brancusi, considered “the father of the modern sculpture” was born on February 19, 1876 in Hobita, Gorj county.
