Background: Sculptors from ten European countries entered examples of their works for the 4th.Sculpture Exhibition in the Sonsbeek Park, Arnhem. Over 300 varied, modern works were on show.
Many visitors, and some of the organisers, were doubtful as to whether the standard of the last three exhibitions would be maintained, in view of the exhibits being of a similar school. When the Dutch State Secretary, Hoppeher, eventually opened the exhibition it was evident that not only had previous standards been equalled but, in some instances, surpassed.
Henry Moore, the British sculptor, received much attention and a host of praise from the critics for his exhibits, which included the 'Reclining Figure' and a group of three people, both in this inimitable style. The Polish artist, Ossip Zadkine, was also acclaimed for his status of 'Vincent van Gosh', which suggested the mental agonies of that great Impressionist and captured his fiery nature. Other entries included the Swiss artists, Fischer, 'Jumping Greyhounds', Maillol's 'Three Nymphs' and the 'Joy of Living' by the Italian Mascherini.
The foremost sculptors of the modern school were represented--Moore, Manzu, Minguzzi, Marini and Zadkine----and in the main they justified their eminence in the world of art. The Butch entrance were dull, which was a great disappointment. The general feeling was that many who should have represented Holland were left out, and those that were included lacked the striking originality and force of such men as Moore.
