In Western understanding, Turkish Sculpture Art can only be mentioned with Sanâyi-i Nefîse, however in Western World, sculpture’s existence lies in varies back from antiquity to prensent. In a relatively short while forming an academic tradition, Sanâyi-i Nefîse, transformed in to the Fine Arts Academy during Republican Era’s reforms. Besides the students sent to overseas with scholarship, Rudolf Belling, also with his great contributions forming the Turkish Monument tradition as well as his contributions to the sculpture education in Turkey, is an important aspect we encounter. Huseyin Gezer, as a student of Rudolph Belling, and as being sent to Europe within the education reforms during the republican era, has an important and an unique role creating Turkish Sculpture tradition via his productions and long years he spent teaching Sculpture in Academy with the academical education he took. This work is studied to be presented as an era piece with the selected art from his first students, important artists of Modern Turkish Sculpture Art, whom have produced in various diciplins using varies of materials rather than Huseyin Gezer’s own art productions. With the interviews and observations, seing that each and every selected artist studied on their own form language and at the same time all of them becoming academicians has proven that Huseyin Gezer has been further than a role model for his students.
