Hour of Art - Ossip Zadkine <sup></sup>

Hour of Art - Ossip Zadkine

Uurtje Kunst is the monthly free art lecture of the Rotterdam Library. Art expert and cultural historian Hoo Man Chan always gives you a new, in-depth insight into a work of art or artist. This month: Ossop Zadkine.

Ossip Zadkine is one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. The artist, who mainly works in Paris, has made an important artistic contribution to Rotterdam with his sculpture "The Destroyed City". After the war, Zadkine saw the destruction in Europe and designed several monuments for it. One of those monuments caught the attention of the Bijenkorf director, who encouraged the purchase of "The Destroyed City" for Rotterdam. The somewhat cubist style of the Rotterdam statue is one of the characteristics of the works throughout Zadkine's oeuvre. What else do his sculptures look like? What variation and development do his sculptures show? We will reflect on this in this lecture.
