Exemplaire No. 311 / 510 exemplaires (exemplaire sur Hollande Van Gelder). / Inscribed and signed by Paul-Henri Bourguignon on the endpaper in 1954.. Edgard Tytgat est un peintre belge ne a Bruxelles (28 avril 1879) et decede a Woluwe-Saint-Lambert (10 janvier 1957). Son pere etait graveur en taille-douce et imprimeur. Il est apprenti chez un horloger de 1893 a 1895, puis travaille chez son pere. De 1897 a 1900, Tytgat suit les cours du soir a l'Academie royale des beaux-arts de Bruxelles. En 1901 il suit les cours a plein temps, notamment chez Constant Montald. C'est la qu'il noue des amities avec d'autres futurs peintres, dont Rik Wouters et Fernand Verhaegen. Il les representera d'ailleurs tous deux, accompagnes de leur epouse, dans un dessin a l'encre de Chine " La ligue des peintres wallons, Doe stil voort " vers 1907. Il quitte la Belgique pour l'Angleterre pendant la Premiere Guerre mondiale et ne revient qu'en 1920, pour s'installer definitivement a Woluwe-Saint-Lambert en 1923. Tytgat est a la fois peintre, graveur, dessinateur, aquafortiste, aquarelliste et xylographe. Comme graveur et xylographe, il a illustre de nombreux ouvrages (" Le petit chaperon rouge ", " La flute enchantee ",etc ). L'imagerie etait son point fort. Son ami Verhaegen a d'ailleurs grave une eau-forte le representant, portant le titre " L'imagier ". Sa peinture, d'allure impressionniste, est souvent qualifiee de peinture naive, avec des scenes de la vie quotidienne, des interieurs, des kermesses, des amoureux, mais non depourvues d'une douce poesie. A partir de 1950 il aborde la representation de legendes mythologiques baignant parfois dans un certain erotisme. Edgard Tytgat a participe a de nombreuses expositions, tant personnelles que collectives, en Belgique et a l'etranger. D'une nature tres retenue, il etait cependant tres attache a ses amis jusqu'a realiser des oeuvres dans lesquelles ceux-ci sont repris. Le musee communal de Bruges detient une oeuvre de lui, representant Aline, l'epouse de son ami Fernand Verhaegen, au balcon, lors de la kermesse de Watermael-Boitsfort en 1911. OEuvres dans les musees de: Anvers, Bruges, Bruxelles, Gand, Ixelles, Liege et Mons Son frere, Medard Tytgat (1871-1948) et le petit-fils de ce dernier, Medard-Siegfried Tytgat (1916-1997), sont egalement peintres. (Wikipedia) __________________________________________ Paul-Henri Bourguignon (1906-1988) was a talented visual artist, a prolific writer and journalist, a skillful photographer, and an avid observer of the human condition. Born in Belgium in 1906, Bourguignon began his arts studies in Brussels' Academie des Beaux Arts and then studied art history at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles. His first solo exhibition was at the Galerie d'Egmont in Brussels at age 22. Bourguignon traveled widely in France, Spain, and Italy, North Africa, Corsica, and Yugoslavia. He lived in both Haiti and Peru. He met his wife, Erika, in Haiti and they settled in Columbus, Ohio in 1950 after she joined the faculty of The Ohio State University. During his long and prolific life, he amassed a large and varied group of paintings-early gouaches and later acrylics-and numerous pencil, pastel and ink-wash drawings. Many of the gouache paintings from the 1950s and 1960s depict tranquil landscapes, rich cultural interpretations and evocative portraits, figures, and genre scenes that were derived from his travels. In the 1970s, his landscapes and figural scenes took new directions and became less specifically descriptive. The works were expressionistic, often with whimsical, vulnerable, or tragic figures revealed in delightfully complex interactions of brushstrokes and texture. Viewers have described his work as "timeless, passionate and visionary." Jacqueline Hall, Art Critic for The Columbus Dispatch, reviewed his paintings in 1989 stating: "When Bourguignon concentrates on faces, the pathos of the human condition stands out." In 2001 she wrote: "His paintings keep charming the viewer, even after they have been seen several times." Today, his widely collected works are found in American museums, and in public and private collections throught the U.S. and Europe. (Wikipedia)
