Google Doodle: Brancusi

Another great thing about Google Doodles aside from their incredible creativity?  Many times they prompt me to learn something new.

Today is the birthday of sculptor Constantin Brancusi.  Born in Romania and working in France, he is apparently one of the fathers of modernism and known for his minimalist style.  Google pays tribute with a Google Doodle of some of Brancusi’s art.
