Kiss Gate by Brancusi
The Gate of the Kiss has a tooled surface, broken by the pores of the material. The Gate of the Kiss relates to Romanian much-decorated folk architecture in wood.
The carvers in stone helped Brancusi: Ion Alexandrescu from Bucharest and Golea from Dobrita. The sizes of this work are 5.14 m high and 5.45 m length. The pillars have 1.69 m width. The whole work is disposed on a steel axle in a concrete foundation having 5 m on each side.
The Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, (1876-1957) was a pioneer of abstraction in sculpture art. His sculpture is noted for its visual elegance and sensitive use of materials, combining the directness of peasant carving with the sophistication of the Parisian avant-garde.
