Medium: linoleum cut printed in five colors
Linoleum cut printed in five colors, 1921, Taillaert 43, edition 119. 11 5/8 x 9 in. Signed and dated in pencil. lower right. This is a superb impression on china paper with fresh colors. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (This print was issued in a folder and bears a trace the original horizontal crease, as issued.) There are subtle fold marks in the outer margins as well as a few tiny glue spots in the margins only.) This is Tytgat's only floral print and it's quite rare, especially here with these colors and the original presentation folder. There's a label with the folder indicating this print was exhibited at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels, in 1973. Tytgat's editions are complicated, even with the very complete Taillaert catalogue raisonné published in 1999. Apart from proofs, this impression is from the first numbered edition printed in 1921. Impressions exist in color variations and in black and white and the last printing of 60 was done in 1925. This is an exceptional and beautifully crafted print by this noted Belgian painter and printmaker.
