Victor Stuyvaert (1897-1974)

Victor Stuyvaert

Flanders has a history filled with great woodblock printing artists. There is of course first of all Frans Masereel, further Jozef Cantré and some find the same qualities present in the works by Victor Stuyvaert. He foremost illustrated books by the classic writers like Cervantes and Edgar Allan Poe, but the majority of people know him from his ex libris prnts. It is a rare occasion that his prints are offered by me , but recently i discovered 2 small prints from a small portfolio which i bought. The reason i liked the prints and they show craftmanship. Both prints are now available at www.ftn-books.com
