Abstract :
The German sculptor Rudolf Belling (1886-1972) who was one of the most innovative artists during the years following World War I was forced to leave his country after the National Socialists came to regime. He was appointed as the chairman of the Department of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Istanbul between 1937-54. Until now, it has always been his earlier career that received attention. This paper argues that the remainder of his career is no less important. His influence upon Turkish sculpture and the works created in Turkey are examined within the framework of his entire career.

Rudolf Belling (1886-1972), l’un des artistes les plus novateurs des années qui ont suivi la Première Guerre mondiale, dut quitter son pays après que les nazis furent arrivés au pouvoir. Il fut nommé président du département de sculpture de l’Académie des beaux-arts d’Istanbul, de 1937 à 1954. Jusqu’à maintenant, seule la première partie de sa carrière a retenu l’attention. Cet article démontre que le reste de sa carrière n’est pas moins important. Son influence sur la sculpture turque et les œuvres créées en Turquie sont examinées dans la perspective d’ensemble de sa carrière.
