Hans Bellmer

Hans Bellmer was born in 1902 in Katowice, Poland. At a very young age he works first as a steelworker, then in the coat mines; encouraging his friends in the revolution, he narrowly escapes from prison. In 1923, he attends classes at the Technical School in Berlin and meets the innovators of Dadaisme. George Grosz pushes him to paint and encourages him to take a critical look at society. Hans . . .

Beyond works currently in stock, it seemed to me useful to combine business with pleasure by letting you discover others works by artists in my gallery. These artworks, now sold or removed from our website, have been in our stock in the past. These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist.
