Jules LAGAE - Johannes der Taufer
Master of Hakendover - Repentance of peter (~1425)
The figure of the kneeling apostle is built up of diagonal planes that extend into the piled rocks. This compact composition directs the viewer’s gaze to very heart of the work, namely Peter’s contorted face and clasped hands. The apostle’s moral dilemma – he has just betrayed Christ – is dramatized with such intensity that the sculpture has a distinctly modern appearance.
Oscar Jespers is regarded as one of the most important modernist sculptors in Belgium. His oeuvre reached a creative high point in the 1920’s especially. Jespers worked modernist influences of international artists such as Brancusi and Zadkine into his own personal image language.
