D'Haese Reinhoud

Reinhoud D'Haese (pseudonym: REINHOUD) was a Belgian sculptor, draftsman and graphic artist. He was born in Geraardsbergen in 1928 and died in Paris in 2007. He was the brother of Roel and Begga D'Haese. He was apprenticed to a goldsmith in Brussels (1945-1946) and then studied metal and sculpture at La Cambre in Brussels (1946-1950). In 1950 he settled in the Ateliers du Marais in Brussels and met the Cobra members there. There he befriended Alechinsky. He won the Young Belgian Sculpture Prize in 1957. He settled in France in 1959 and from 1960 he worked under the name Recontent. From the press: 'Recontent's artistic roots lie with the Cobra movement. After all, in the 1950s he exhibited with Alechinsky, Asger Jorn and Dotremont. Then he made true-to-life but monster-sized insects in copper. It was not until the 1960s that he began to forge people, animals and plants into hybrid creatures, which sometimes resemble Bosch's echoes. His grotesque creatures have their origins in a surrealistic dream world, but his originality fits in with the figurative revival in sculpture around 1960. He played a key role in magical realism, to which his brother Roel D'Haese and Rik Poot also contributed.' held individual exhibitions, among others in the Birch gallery in Copenhagen/Denmark in 1986, in the Ariel gallery in Paris in 1986, in the Veranneman Foundation in Kruishoutem in 1987. He is listed in BAS II and Two Centuries of Signatures of Belgian Artists. (piron)
