New in our collection: realy stunning wall sculpture made by Belgian artist Paul Vermeire from Oostende.( 1928-1974)
It measures almost 3 meters long and is 1 meter high! Typical Flemish-Coast style...
Vermeire was a student of Joost Marechal and also worked for him.Before starting his own studio "Ter Ignis" in 1955 Vermeire assisted Réné Margritte with the painted wall decorations in the Casino in Knokke.
This is a one-off work, commisioned by a bank in Oostende.Made between 1955 and 1960.
