Edgar Tijtgat (1879-1957) is one of my favourite Belgian artists;
I love his deceptively innocent style and there's
always a longing for the lost paradise expressed in his work.
These woodcuts come from 'Le Petit Chaperon Rouge', also
the entire text and endleaves are printed from woodblocks!
The photo below is Tijtgat in his doorway and his wife Blanche
leaning out of the window. don't know why
the entrance is 1 metre above the ground :-)
I think they were a strange but funny and happy couple,
at least that's the way they look.
Pop over to jokemijn for more abandoned houses.
Happy weekend everybody!
