Martin van Wordragen had a traditional classical education, so he was forced to paint realistic scenes for many years. The young Martin was not happy with that. In the meantime he was introduced to the Cobra movement and it touched him deeply. This was the style he wanted; this was painting from the heart. To broaden his knowledge he frequently visited museums and exhibitions. At that time he also became acquainted with (the work of?) Constant Permeke, which gave him a fascination for Flemish Expressionism. This painter and the Cobra movement caused a break with traditional painting. Martin van Wordragen grew to become the painter we know today.
