Loet Vanderveen was born in Rotterdam, Holland. Vanderveen studied with Fong Chow, then curator of the Far Eastern Department of the Metropolitan Museum in New York. This led to private ceramic studies with Fong for the next three years. He learned a great deal about Chinese glaze techniques and applying fine glazes to the correct forms. This knowledge eventually led to applying patinas to bronze animal forms. He ventured into designing animals in bronze. These designs are enhanced by a rich palette of subtle patinas. These uniquely stylized interpretations are appreciated by distinguished worldwide collectors including H.M. Queen Elizabeth, President and Mrs. Reagan, the Sultan of Oman, President Suharto of Indonesia, Mr. Barry Manilow and Mr. Arnold Schwartzenegger.
Mr. Vanderveen has exhibited at numerous galleries and museums. De Young Museum, San Francisco and the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, New York are among them.
Curators note: This Sculpture was limited to an edition of 1500 and made in various bronze finishes. All works are signed and numbered BUT hidden under of the horse due to mounting on wood base.
