Madeleine van der Knoop, Belgian artist born in 1953 in Brussels, lives and
works in Antwerp. She is well known for her impressive bird sculptures and possesses a particular talent for reinterpreting these animals with intense realism, transposing what she perceives in the right proportions, while adding a personal touch. The sculptor regulary collaborates with the Maison Daum. The ‘‘pâte de cristal’’ gives life to deep and luminous shades of color, reinterpreting every detail of Madeleine van der Knoop’s works, worked by the craftsmen of the Nancy manufacturer.
