Nach 1893. -- -- Der Belgier Constantin Meunier begann als Maler vorwiegend religiöser Motive, wandte sich jedoch ab den 1880er Jahren der Skulptur zu. Fortan stellte er die Arbeiter seiner Heimat in den Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens - hier etwa einen Hafenarbeiter ("débardeur") aus Antwerpen. Die Modernität von Meuniers Kunst, die mit ihrem Realismus künstlerische Entwicklungen des neuen Jahrhunderts vorwegnimmt, liegt im würdevollen und zugleich ungeschönten Einfangen sozialer Wirklichkeit. -- -- - Provenienz: Sammlung Prof. Hans Kollhoff, Berlin. -- -- - Wir bitten darum, Zustandsberichte zu den Losen zu erfragen, da der Erhaltungszustand nur in Ausnahmefällen im Katalog angegeben ist. -- - Please ask for condition reports for individual lots, as the condition is usually not mentioned in the catalogue.

              Constantin MEUNIER (1831-1905) Le Père Damien. Rare épreuve en bronze à patine nuancée. Cachet du fondeur A.F. VANAERSCHODT Frères. Cet éditeur peu courant et initialement spécialisé dans la réalisation de cloches en bronze, a également édité certaines sculptures de Constantin Meunier. Le musée d'Orsay possède d'ailleurs une version des puddleurs au four de 1893 fondue par Vanaerschodt. Le musée détient aussi des archives de nombreux travaux réalisés par le fondeur belge. Le monument du père Damien, dont nous retrouvons l'illustration page 2558 de l'encyclopédie Engelen-Marx, la sculpture en Belgique depuis 1830, a été inaugurée en 1884 dans le parc Saint Donat de Louvain. Une réduction en bronze par Verbeyst, mesurant 55 cm, était également conservée à l'église Saint Jacques, rue de Bruxelles à Louvain. Détail anecdotique : la sculpture fut réalisée cinq ans seulement après le décès du Père Damien. Le visage de la statue ne représente pas le Père Damien, mais le chanoine Thiery. Usant de ses bonnes relations avec Constantin Meunier, il parvint en effet à se faire représenter en mémoire d'un autre.

Constantin MEUNIER (1831-1905) Le Père Damien. Rare bronze proof with shaded patina. Foundry stamp A.F. VANAERSCHODT Frères. This unusual publisher, initially specialized in bronze bells, also produced some of Constantin Meunier's sculptures. The Musée d'Orsay also owns an 1893 version of Les puddleurs au four, cast by Vanaerschodt. The museum also holds archives of numerous works by the Belgian foundryman. The monument to Father Damien, illustrated on page 2558 of the Engelen-Marx encyclopedia, Sculpture in Belgium since 1830, was inaugurated in 1884 in Leuven's Parc Saint Donat. A bronze reduction by Verbeyst, measuring 55 cm, was also preserved in the Saint Jacques church on rue de Bruxelles in Leuven. Anecdotal detail: the sculpture was created just five years after Father Damien's death. The face of the statue does not represent Père Damien, but Canon Thiery. Using his good relations with Constantin Meunier, he managed to have himself represented in memory of someone else.

              CONSTANTIN MEUNIER (Belgium, 1831 - 1905). "Prawn fisherman", ca. 1880. Bronze. Signed. Size: 41 x 27 cm.; 47 cm. high. Constantin Meunier's sculptural figures are characterised by exuding an endearing humanity, which is abundantly evident in this shrimp fisherman on his horse, on his way to the sea. Meunier initially trained with his brother, the engraver Jean-Baptiste Meunier, before entering the Brussels Academy in 1845, where he was supervised by the sculptor Louis Jehotte from 1848. Then, between 1851 and 1857, he worked in a private studio under the orders of the sculptor Charles-Auguste Fraikin and the painter François Joseph Navez. In the afternoons he attended the painting classes of Charles de Groux, of the Saint-Lucas studio, who had an important influence on Meunier. He made friends with artists such as Louis Dubois and Félicien Rops, with whom he founded the Société Libre des Beaux-Arts (Free Society of Fine Arts) in Brussels in 1868, an exponent of avant-garde realism. He began his first sculptures in the 1980s. He was particularly interested in the world of mining, such as "The explosion of firedamp" (1887, based on a real tragedy), "The miners' wives" and "Return of the miners". He worked almost exclusively in bronze, giving his figures of workers an awareness of their humanity and dignity. In 1887 he was appointed professor at the Leuven Academy and then at the Brussels Academy. He then began a set of austere sculptures dedicated to labour, which he wanted to call Monument to Labour. The group remained unfinished, as he only created four reliefs (Industry, The Harvest, The Port and The Mine) crowned with four allusive figures (The Blacksmith, The Sower, The Ancestor and The Miner); the monument was installed much later, in 1930, in Trooz Square in Brussels. In 1896 he presented a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Art Noevau Gallery in Paris, with the help of Henry Van de Velde. He was later well received in Germany and Austria. Elected member of the Royal Academy of Belgium (1900), he received several prizes as a painter (bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1889) and as a sculptor (grand prize at the Universal Exhibitions of 1889 and 1900, officer of the Order of Leopold and knight of the Legion of Honour in 1889). His house in Brussels was fitted out as a museum as early as 1900, a few years before his death, which occurred while he was working on a sculptural group entitled Fecundity, in honour of the writer Émile Zola.
