The Belgian sculptor Pieter Braecke (1858-1938)

Pieter Braecke (1858-1938) of Belgium began his artistic journey as an apprentice under Hendrick Pickery, learning wood and stone craftsmanship while studying at the Fine Arts Academies in Bruges and Leuven. In 1885, he joined sculptor Paul de Vigne in Brussels, simultaneously building his own successful career with acclaimed exhibitions and awards. Braecke’s talent even led to a home-studio designed by Victor Horta in 1901. Despite a slowdown during World War II, he continued to create notable commissions like war monuments and church reliefs after the war. A co-founder of « Pour l’Art » and a member of the Royal Academy, Braecke’s impact on artistic life was significant, marked by his contributions to Nieuwpoort’s museum. His passing preceded the unveiling of his final war monument, survived by his wife Elodea Romeo.
