Raoul Hague established the framework of his foundation in the years before his death, to care for his sculptures and steer them into appropriate collections. Born Haig Heukelekian in Constantinople in 1905, Hague carved in his studio well into his last year, and died at the age of 88 in 1993. For half a century he lived a principled and somewhat isolated life in a primitive cabin on a wooded road which had once been the site of the rustic Maverick Artists Colony in Woodstock, New York. The house, studio and sculpture facilities are now maintained by the Raoul Hague Foundation. Along with our accumulating archives and the fascinating scrapbooks documenting the artist's intellectual and visual interests, these resources present an excellent opportunity for further research into this important sculptor of the New York School.
