In a Parisian Cemetery, a Lovely Brancusi Has Vanished in Plain Sight

The mystery is why this designated historical monument (since 1992) — which appears to belong to the city of Paris and has long been protected by video surveillance — has been unavailable to the public for six months now? And, more urgently, what lies ahead for it?This isn’t the first time questions have arisen about the Brancusi’s future. Seven years ago, concern for “The Kiss” was sounded by Didier Rykner, who reported in La Tribune de l’Art that it had been the subject of an application for an export certificate initiated, allegedly, by a descendant of the deceased, a member of the Rachewskaïa family. Ironically, in 1910 the Rachewskaïa family did not appreciate this eccentric funerary monument and proposed it be chang... (Hyperallergic)
