The reprint painting DE BLAUWE VOGEL is part of a limited series of 75. The painting image is part of the book ‘De blauwe vogel’. A famous tale that was originally a play, written in 1908 by the Belgian Maurice Maeterlinck. It tells the story about two children Mytyl and Tyltyl seeking happiness, that is represented by the ‘de blauwe vogel’. It was a very popular play and was performed in New York on Moscow to Tokyo. Maurice Maeterlinck became the only Belgian Nobel Prize Winner for Literature in 1911. In 2011, more than 100 years later after the Nobel Prize, the story was rewritten by Do van Ranst (author) and the characters were brought back to life by the unique paintings of Carll Cneut (illustrator). It became a dark, modern fairy tale, reinforced by the equally dark illustrations of Carll Cneut that perfectly reflect the magic and the symbolism of the story.
The image of the reprint painting De blauwe vogel refers to the sky-blue palace where Mytyl and Tyltyl meet their brother between many other unborn children. The small bags carried by the children, refer to the ‘weight’ that we all carry through life.
