José Vermeersch

José Vermeersch: One of the most important Flemisch sculptors of the post-war period. 

José Vermeersch produced works in bronze starting in 1969 and developed a patina that closely approximates the skin aspect of his ceramic works. 

A lot of these important sculptures were exhibited in a.o. Venice, Mexico city, Paris, Amsterdam and San Francisco.
