  • About the artwork
    Beautiful stylized small bronze of a gazelle, a work by the Amsterdam sculptor Adrianus Remiëns (1890-1972).
    The gazelle is signed with his monogram "A.R." and has a beautiful warm brown patina.

    Biography:
    Adrianus Remiëns (Amsterdam, 1890-1972) was not only a sculptor, but also a painter and draftsman. He was educated at the Amsterdam Drawing School for Art Crafts, his teacher was the well known Joseph Mendes da Costa.

    In addition to being a painter, he was mainly a sculptor of human and animal figures, mask heads and reliefs in a Symbolist Expressionist style. His sculptures were very stylized with little detail. This is also clearly reflected in the gazelle. He worked for Kunstaardewerkfabriek Regina in Gouda and Winkelman en van der Bijl, who also executed some of his designs in bronze. In addition, he also collaborated with the famous architect Berlage, for example, and designed building sculptures and facade ornaments for Amsterdam School blocks, including on Mercatorplein.

    During his life he lived and worked in Amsterdam, Blaricum and Laren. He was a member of various artists' groups, such as the Dutch Circle of Sculptors, St. Lukas, The Independents and the Association for B.K. Laren-Blaricum.

    His work can also be found in Dutch museums, for example the Centraal Museum in Utrecht has a bronze deer by him in their collection
