Isn't She Lovely
NamedMademoiselle Pogany when it was first cast by Constantin Brancusi in Bronze around 1913, this almost otherworldly female form is found only in museums or the homes of the ultra rich. An original was said to be worth, at the height of the art market, over $100 Million. We were lucky to come across a beautiful vintage homage made of plaster. Marked 1961, our best educated guess would be that this scale (17" tall) reproduction was made for sale at a museum shop during a retrospective of his work.
