About

EGBERT MODDERMAN WINS BP PORTRAIT AWARD FOR YOUNGSTERS 2020 London (GBR) May 5, 2020 Great International Art Prize after Egbert Modderman. Groningen artist Egbert Modderman (1989) has become the winner of the “BP Young Artist Award 2020”. The prize, instituted by "The National Portrait Gallery in London", goes to Modderman for the painting "Restless". The Dutch artist emerged from a selection of nearly 2000 paintings from all over the world. It is the first time in 30 years that this honorable and internationally highly regarded young artist award has been awarded to a Dutch artist. Dr Nicholas Cullinan, Director, National Portrait Gallery London says: 'I am pleased we have been able to find a way to share the BP Portrait Award 2020 exhibition with our visitors at home, during this uncertain time and hope that staging a virtual exhibition will provide us with the opportunity to bring the very best in contemporary portrait painting to an even wider audience. The BP Portrait Award is tasked with finding and recognizing portrait paintings that combine technical accomplishment and a demonstration of insight and empathy for the subject and sitter. It is a tough challenge, but, this year, one that has been responded to with great prowess and I would like to congratulate all the shortlist artists and those selected for exhibition. "It is 5 years ago that we saw the work of Egbert Modderman for the first time. Since 2017, Egbert Modderman 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. We exclusive represent this fine young artist. His works will be shipped in a custom made wooden crate. Shipping, crating and insurance is free. Feel free to ask anything about this artist and this work.
