(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.
