Dialectics of the Dialectic (1945), before leaving Bucharest in 1952 for Paris, where he collaborated with Jean Arp
, Max Ernst, and others.
He boldly summons, for example, Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp
(whose works hold court in the Art Institute's modern collection), calling on the rudimentary formal language championed in early-twentieth-century avant-garde sculpture.
