Reinhoud d'Haese
"Ecoutez" Sculptural Mythical Figure in Copper & Stone & Signed

Circa 1960

About

"Ecoutez" is a magnificent hammered copper figure on a natural stone base that is signed by the artist. This mythical creature invites a caress of its warm golden body as it appears to be listening to words, sounds or music from a dimension we cannot enter. Webbed feet and a dog-like face are enticements to draw closer and listen better. An exquisite welded Surrealist piece that is unique and one-of-a-kind. It is signed by the artist. Reinhoud d’Haese was born in Grammont, Belgium. Initially, he studied to become a goldsmith, at the École d’Architecture et des Arts Decoratifs in Brussels, but soon abandoned that to study sculpture. Creating surreal works that permitted him, thanks to the help of his friend Pierre Alechinsky who was a lithographer and close friend, to become part of the Avant-Garde Movement, COBRA group with which he exhibited subsequently on numerous occasions. Members of the group were: Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Christian Dotremont, Asger Jorn, and Joseph Noiret. In 1958 – when the COBRA movement had already been disbanded for some time – he finally decided to continue his research independently. From that moment on, he used varied materials like metals, pewter and glass, producing a large “family” of mysterious and amusing beings, like characters from children’s fairy tales, perfectly in tune with the language of the COBRA group. Generally these figures – small-scale sculptures – were displayed in groups, performing human activities. Some of the museums in which his works have been exhibited at: the Maison de la Culture in Namur, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Holland, and the PMMK- Museum of Modern Art in Brussels.
