Biography

Edgard Tytgat was a Belgian painter, printmaker and writer. In 1900 he began his education at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels and studied under Constant Montald. He was influenced by Symbolism until WWI, when he went to exile in England where he started his work as a printmaker, including woodcuts and linocuts together with his wife Maria. She was also his model for the numerous canvases painted in London.

Around 1925 Tytgat became aware of Expressionism. His plasticity grew stronger, his colors darker, and his desire for simplification came to dominate the forms. He was a member of the Art Contemporain in Antwerp, and of Groupe des IX, Le Centaure and the Sélection in Brussels. His brother Médard also became a painter.
