Covered Head - 21st Century Contemporary Oil Painting by Egbert Modderman

2019

About

It is 5 years ago that we saw the work of Egbert Modderman for the first time. The work "Sint Martinus" was purchased by the Martini Church in Groningen and occupies a prominent place there. In the portrait, Martinus gives a beggar half of his cloak. He then made a very special entry into the art world. The church board and the public were enthusiastically enthusiastic that an exhibition of ten major works followed in 2016. The result was that there was great international attention for the work that Modderman makes. Since 2017, he has been working on a major follow-up assignment for the Martini Church: painting the seven works of mercy. The works will be placed in the choir of the church. It is the first time since the Reformation and the iconoclasm - when the church became Protestants - that permanent visual art is again present in the church. As a result of the first exhibition in the Martini Church, the work Egbert Modderman is on permanent display in the United States. In a museum specially set up around his work called "Modderman Biblical Art." A large part of the work is currently on loan to the "Museum of the Bible" in Washington. We are very happy that we are going to work exclusively with this special artist. After our first introduction 5 years ago, the artist's drive continues to be large and fits perfectly into our ambitious collection. Modderman lives and works in Groningen. He considers himself more a craftsman than an artist. Egbert about his work: Inspiration I get my paintings from, among other things, my own background, the Christian tradition. From this tradition I know the stories in the Bible View humanity in all its simplicity, complexity and drama emerges. In my paintings I try to show these universal and timeless human emotions. My painting style is figurative with a dramatic and religious approach.
