• Burgert is considered one of the most important contemporary artists in Germany and an internationally sought-after representative of New German Figuration
• The early painting "Adlerkopf" is a great example of Burgert's virtuoso use of historical references
• "Adlerkopf" is a document of Burgert's work process in which every detail is detail is meticulously conceived and which fundmentally excludes any sort of artistic spontaneity.
• Burgert's paintings are complex pictorial riddles that often address existential questions making them painted philosophy.
• "Adlerkopf" was made the year of Burgert's breakthroug in context of the exhibition "Geschichtenerzähler" (2005) at the Hamburger Kunsthalle.
• Today Burgert's paintings are in possession of, among others, the London Saatchi Gallery, the Kunsthalle Hamburg or the Collection Sander in Berlin

"When I get to the studio I just sit around for two hours before I start to do any ork. You have to leave out all common relevance of life and enter sensitivity, meaning you have to invest quite some effort to be really sensitive. " Jonas Burgert, quote from: deutschlandfunkkultur.de, April 18, 2018
