Edgard Tytgat (1897–1957) pulled out all the visual stops in his paintings, prints and drawings, in which he retells myths, folk legends and fairy tales. Like the filmmakers of his time, he presented a world full of imagination, absurdity and humour. M Museum in Leuven has brought Tytgat’s ‘fairy stories’ back to life by showing a wide range of his works from museum and private collections. Ludion is publishing the book to accompany this fine exhibition, which runs from 8 December 2017 to 8 April 2018.
