Xavier Eeckhout - Exhibition & Catalogue Raisonné Roger Godchaux - 17.09 > 18.10.2021


Xavier Eeckhout is pleased to present the first monographic exhibition of the artist Roger Godchaux (1878-1958) in the gallery on the occasion of the publication of the catalogue raisonné 
J.F. Dunand & X. Eeckhout, Roger GODCHAUX (1878-1958) - Oeuvre complet, ed. Faton, 2021, Paris.       

Roger Godchaux was one of the leading animal sculptors of the twentieth century. In the 1930s, he created a naturalistic bestiary, on the margins of a movement called le retour du lisse. A great admirer of Barye, he revived naturalistic animal art by modelling animals in their pacific postures. This richly illustrated book, written by the sculptor’s grandson, Jean-François Dunand, and the gallery owner Xavier Eeckhout, reveals for the first time the genius of this discreet multi-faceted artist : his statuary, his extraordinary bestiary, which has been entirely reproduced in this book, and his graphic works, composed of moving portraits of family members and instantaneous sketches of animals.
