Meer informatie

Willem Antonius van der Winkel was born in The Hague in 1887. He died in the same city in 1932. Van der Winkel was a son of Willem Johannes van der Winkel (1858-1932), ornament maker, carpenter and restorer, and Maria Hendrika Johanna de Heer (1853-1925). He learned woodworking in his father’s workshop and took lessons from a stonemason, while attending the Academy of Arts in the evenings. He then worked in various studios, in the period 1908-1911 in Groningen, then again in The Hague. He made both architectural sculpture and small sculptures, often religious representations. On display is an imposing turquoise patinated bronze depicting a hawk. The head and beak are exceptionally modeled. This is displayed over its entire length and stands on a wide cube-shaped base. The latter is carved with the initials “VDW” and several symbols reminiscent of the Third Reich. The entire statue stands on a black striped stepped marble plinth. The whole radiates strength and elegance. Dating from around 1925.
