Pierre de Soete was an apprentice at the Compagnie des Bronzes of Brussles and met sculptors as Julien Dillens, Constantin Meunier and Jef Lambeaux.
Working full time as a sculptor from 1924, he received numerous commissions, among others for war memorials. We owe him in particular the monument to the heroes of the air located on avenue Franklin Roosevelt in Brussels.
