The Ascetic Beauty of Brancusi (nybooks.com)

When Brancusi died, he left his workshop to the French state. It has been rebuilt right in front of the Centre Pompidou and can be visited for free, it's very interesting!

I visited a retrospective of his art at the Paris Centre G Pompidou a few years back.

I am not a huge fan of contemporary art and I had to endure five or six rooms filled with ONE sculpture (some kind of an ovaloid with a small hole). Polished, unpolished, steel, copper, all the variations. It was exhausting.

Art collectors are insane

Maybe so, but please don't post unsubstantive comments to Hacker News.
