Roland Piché (born London, 1938), emerged as a radical art student in the early 1960s from the Royal College of Art. He was immediately recognised as an important, independent new voice and through the New Generation Exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery, he was identified and subsequently represented for several years by leading London art gallery, Marlborough Fine Art.
During these years Piché enjoyed numerous high-profile exhibitions and his work attracted a great deal of publicity both within the art world and popular culture; his portrait was even taken by photographer, David Bailey, for Vogue.
Between 1956-1960 Piché was a part-time assistant to Henry Moore whose sculpture has had a significant influence on his life’s work, which is complex, reflecting an admiration of American art, together with the humanist european traditions, and formal issues of ancient Egyptian art.
Piché's work is in many public collections, including: the Royal College of Art; the Museum of Modern Art - New York; the Peter Stuyvesant Foundation; the British Council; Sao Paulo Museum; the Arts Council of Great Britain; and the Gothenburg Museum, Sweden.
The original was commissioned by Northampton college and was in bronze and is the last photo in this listing.
