Dutch still life paintings using classical technique, by London-based artist Tanja Möderscheim
Tanja Möderscheim is a Dutch fine artist based in London. Her still life paintings are painted in a classical style using traditional technique and pigments. Close attention to detail and anatomy, nurtured by her background in science, is a nod to the increased interest in naturalism during the Dutch Golden Age (17th Century).
She divides her time between painting commissioned pieces, painting for exhibitions and working on ongoing projects, cultural and culinary heritage.
Her cultural heritage project focuses on Dutch historical tulips from the 16th to 19th centuries. She sources the bulbs from the gene bank Hortus Bulborum in Holland and grows these in her garden, resulting in annual series of tulip paintings. Go to the tulip page to read more about this project.
Her culinary heritage project is about celebrating artisan and local food produce; she brings out the best of the artisans’ products in her paintings. As part of this she collaborated with the BBC Food and Farming Awards and her work with chef Lise of Bon Fond, painting the produce of French artisans, has led to an upocming exhibition at the College Culinaire de France in Paris. Read more about this project on the Culinary heritage project page.
Other still life paintings focus on Delft Blue tableware, Roman archaeological artifacts and birds.
Key exhibitions include the Mall Galleries, London (RBA, SWA, SBA) and Affordable Art Fair (Otomys Gallery).
