Brancusi at WCMA

For the first time ever, Williams College Art History 101 students have the opportunity to enjoy in person a work of art by Constantin Brancusi (Romanian, 1876-1957), one of Professor E.J. Johnson’s favorite artists. Now on view at the museum, Mlle. Pogany II (1925) is on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery so that students and faculty can enjoy an important part of art history. The bronze piece, like much of Brancusi’s work, reduces the subject to its most…

Behind the Scenes– Part 2

Delighted from my collaborative role in the morning, I came back to the gallery that afternoon to help with the wall drawing. I had seen photos of Oedipal Blind Spot when it was exhibited at other locations, and thus had a general impression of its scale and complexity.
