Hansel and Gretel is one of the scariest Grimm Brothers stories, but my children are easily scared so I picked a cheerful part of the story to depict. The hungry brother and sister happen upon a house made of sweets - every child's fantasy - and I show the moment where, wide eyed with amazement, they reach to take their first sweetie from the window. Hans en Grietje are the Dutch names for Hansel and Gretel.
This is an original, handmade linoblock print, hand coloured with acrylic inks. Each print is therefore a unique work of art, and no two are exactly the same. If you would like to see your specific print before purchase, please contact me and I will e-mail you an image.
I take great care to ensure that my prints will last for a long time. I use only acid-free paper, printed with Van Son rubber based printing ink, and coloured with permanent acrylic inks. The image size is 10x15 cm (4x6 inches), and the outside dimensions of the mount are exactly A4 (21x29.7cm). Each print is signed along with its limited edition number (one of 50).
