Two works by Brancusi, on auction for the first time

Two rare works signed by Constantin Brancusi, will be on auction for the first time ever, in the Avant-garde and Expressionism Auction organized by Artmark House on January 26. Brancusi, best-known for his brilliant works of sculpture, had a life-long passion for documentary photography and drawing. One of these drawings, “The Tasselled Hoopoe” (estimated at EUR 5,000-10,000), is auctioned off by a private collector in Bucharest who acquired it in a Christie’s auction. The drawing was meant as a project for illustration for the poetry collection “Plants and animals”, published by Ilarie Voronca in 1929 in Paris. The second work is the art-object photograph “Red Skins”, dating from 1906, estimated at a price ranging between EUR 2,000-4,000. “Red Skins” was one of the sculptures destroyed by the artist in 1907, in a fit of outrage against his own Impressionist era works.
