"Brâncusi treated his studio as a work of art in its own right. He first rented a small loft in Paris’s 15th arrondissement in 1916; by 1941 he had four additions to the original studio. There the artist spent years arranging, rearranging, and photographing his sculptures, seeking an ideally balanced totality from a variety of angles. Visitors to the studio described it in mystical, awe-inspiring terms. According to fellow artist Man Ray, entering it was like “penetrating into another world.” In 1956, the year before his death, Brâncusi bequeathed his studio to the French state with the stipulation that it be reconstructed just as he left it.
