The form of the Madonnas that are now returning to the collection are based on an original historic design. When it came to the color scheme, rather than stick to the simple original design, Wendt and Kuehn set the challenge of devising  new artistic variations. 

The result: two Madonnas, each very different in appearance. While the Madonna in the dark-blue / richly painted dress exudes elegance, the one with the pale-blue robe touches us with her gentle demeanor. Regardless of which version you choose, the skill and artistry that has gone into their painting means these impressive large figurines represent the master craftsmanship of the Wendt and Kuehn workshops like no others.

It is not known whether Grete Wendt was interested in the Virgin Mary in a religious sense or if she took a more humanistic view of the Madonna as a depiction of a mother and child. What we do know is that she was very taken with a particular painting of the Madonna, the “The Virgin and Child with a Pear” by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), a German painter. A reproduction of this work hung on the wall of her living room.

In the coming years Wendt and Kuehn intends to select with great care, and at regular intervals, a number of genuine treasures from their extraordinary treasure trove of designs.
