La Procession à Watermael - EDGARD TYTGAT - woodcut

Belgian, (1879-1957)

Woodcut, 1919, Taillaert 41 (planche 1); edition 60 (50?) in black and white. 5 7/8 x 7 7/8 in. Signed, dated (1921) and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on thin Japanese paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good overall other than occasional subtle spots of foxing and there's a printing crease in the upper left margin, apart from the image. This print is from his celebrated series, "Carrousels et Baraques" which was created in London in 1919. This is one of 50(60?) black and white impressions printed in 1925. (There were color editions as well.) Tytgat's style is both expressionist and charmingingly naive. He was interested in "scènes quotidiennes", popular tales, the circus and the the Flemish kermesse. He was a unique and gifted artist working as a painter and printmaker and the fine, early impressions of his prints are hard to find.      SOLD
