To celebrate National Bird Day we're sharing a collection highlight, "Bird in Space" by Constantin Brancusi. This work looks like nothing we would recognize as a bird, but the simplicity of the abstract shape conveys what is truly real for the artist: the essence of the thing, rather than its external appearance. Brancusi explored the theme of the soaring bird in more than thirty marble and bronze versions over the course of four decades.

This is the only known self-portrait by Margit Pogany, the Hungarian-Jewish painter identified as “Mademoiselle Pogany” in sculptures by Constantin Brancusi. Pogany met Brancusi in Paris in 1910 and soon commissioned him to create a sculpture of her. Exhibited in New York in 1913, Brancusi’s depiction brought him international fame by flabbergasting critics with its extreme simplification of form and exaggerated eyes. The same year, Pogany painted this expressive self-portrait striking a similar pose. Before her death, Margit Pogany arranged to sell her painting to the museum so that it could be kept with Brancusi’s portraits of her.
