We welcome you to enjoy a variety of activities for public audiences, including special exhibitions, programs for children and families, lectures, concerts and films.
Sculptor Constantin Brancusi returned to the subject of Mademoiselle Pogany several times over twenty years. In this final version, the model’s facial features virtually disappear, her arms become a single fin, and her chignon hairstyle a scalloped cascade strongly reminiscent of contemporary architecture and design. Discover more about this sculpture during our Spotlight Gallery Conversations on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday at 11 a.m.”Mademoiselle Pogany [III],” 1931, Constantin Brancusi
