Peter Haden

South African 1939-1997 


Sculptor Peter Haden was born and grew up in Johannesburg. He seems to have had little formal art training but may have apprenticed in the studio of Ernest Ullmann. He was mentored by gallerist Egon Guenther in the 1960s and benefited from the exposure that high-profile exhibitions at Guenther’s Linksfield gallery afforded. After travelling in Europe and the UK, Haden established “The Academy’, in Craighall, Johannesburg, which he hoped would be a meeting place for artists as well as an art school. Students and colleagues at ‘The Academy’ included Wopko Jensma, Cyril Kumalo, Julian Motau, Stanley Nkosi, Naomi Press and Wendy Vincent. Haden emigrated to Switzerland in 1971.
