Artwork of the day

The Kiss, Constantin Brancusi, 1908

A small break from Tudor art to commemorate the birth of Constantin Brancusi with a kiss.  
Brancusi was born 135 years ago on the 19th of February 1876 in Romania. He is one of first and major exponents of abstraction in sculpture and has developed a highly recognizable personal style.
The Kiss is his first major work. It was created from a single block of stone and deals with an old subject in a totally new way. Brancusi did several versions of this sculpture in his later career.
