Aertsz., Richard  

Dutch, 16th century, male.

Born 1482, in Wyck; died 1577, in Antwerp.

Painter. Religious subjects. Designs for stained glass.

Richard Aertsz. was the son of a poor Dutch fisherman. His leg was amputated after having been badly burned and, as a result, he chose a profession that could accommodate his handicap. Due to his remarkable talent he was sent to study with Jan Mostaert the elder, who was then a successful artist in Haarlem. The young Aertsz. was reportedly likable and witty, and these personal qualities and his exceptional circumstances were perhaps a factor in making him a favoured student. It is certainly true that when Aertsz. left Mostaert his work showed a talent superior to that of his master. His first work was a painting of scenes from the life of Joseph, which he produced on the panel flaps of the high altar in the main church of Haarlem. He then went to Antwerp, and was made a member of the town's Academy in ...

Beginning in 1946, he received his secondary education in Dakar, where he also worked in an architecture firm. He travelled to France and received his diplôme supérieur from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris. A versatile artist, Ahyi is best known for his murals and for monumental stone, marble and cement public sculptures. His work reflects the fusion of his Togolese roots, European training and an international outlook, and he counts among his influences Moore, Braque, Modigliani, Tamayo, Siqueiros and Tall. His work combines ancient and modern themes and materials, maternity being a prominent topic. The messages of his larger, public pieces operate on a broad level to appeal to the general populace, while smaller works often reflect his private engagement with challenges confronting the human condition. His compositions are both abstract and figurative and evoke the heroism and hope of the two world wars, Togo's colonial period and the struggle for independence from France, as well as the political efforts of the peoples of Vietnam, South Africa and Palestine. Ahyi has won numerous international prizes, including the prize of the city of Lyon (...
