Constantin Brâncuşi (1876-1957) was an innovative and sometimes controversial Romanian sculptor.

After leaving his native Romania, he worked in Paris where he moved in avant-garde literary and artistic circles alongside Pablo Picasso, Ezra Pound and Man Ray.

Among his most important works are three sculptures that commemorate Romanians who died in the First World War; these are displayed in Târgu Jiu, a town near to where he was born.
