About this artwork

Tytgat was a born storyteller and his awareness of narrative is a crucial aspect of his work. The fact that he was a townsman and spent most of his life in the suburbs of Brussels also influenced his imagery. His landscapes are always peopled with human figures. Tygat's paintings recount minor events like the fairground and the circus but he was also inspired by barbaric and erotic Oriental tales which he blended with his own stange fantasies.
