Two figures on a horse (1965) Cor Dam
Artist Cor Dam has made a number of special monumental works of art, such as ceramic tableaus and reliefs with bricks, in which he combines two and three dimensions. He is a talented sculptor. You can also see his gift for compositional variation in this earlier, free-standing sculpture Two figures on a horse. It is an image that is interesting from more sides and where the idea of horse riders is stylized in an unusual way. The skin is covered with a pattern of notches.
Cor Dam (Delft, 1935 - Delft, 2019) followed a course at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague. He is not only a sculptor, but also a painter, draftsman and ceramicist. After his studies he became a designer at De Porceleyne Fles in Delft. He was also a lecturer at Delft University of Technology from 1988.
