More Brancusi "Bird In Space"

Artist Jay Rolfe has also - aside from the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art mentioned in yesterday's post - communed with sculptures by Constantin Brancusi at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and other places. The Met has a white marble "Bird In Space" from 1923 by Brancusi which is also beautiful and elegant. Here's a photo of it, and a link to the Met's website. http://www.metmuseum.org/Works_of_Art/collection_database/Bird_in_Space_Constantin_Brancusi/ViewObject.aspx?depNm=modern_art&pID=-1&kWd=Matisse&OID=210006973&vW=-1&Pg=1&St=0&StOd=1&vT=1

Artist Jay Rolfe saw a bronze bird sculpture by Brancusi with a slightly different shape titled "Golden Bird" from 1919-20 at the Art Institute of Chicago. This polished bronze shape is also beautiful and elegant. Here's a photo of it and a link to the Art Institute's website. http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/eurptg/citi/object?id=91194&collcatid=10

Finally, the third photo is a different view of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's "Bird In Space (Yellow Bird)" from 1923-24 which was featured on yesterday's post. This view shows the bird and the base from a different angle, really showing off the base.

That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his Hyper Representational 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/. Artist Jay Rolfe uses vibrant color, 3-D, recognizable shape, and huge size to reveal beauty, touch emotion in a positive way, and create an Uplifting Conversation Piece.
