page from the sketchbook of Edith Pijpers
Edith Pijpers was born 1886 in Amsterdam and died 1963 Amersfoort. She was a very versatile artist. She studied at the "Teekenacademie" in The Hague, was trained and worked in watercolor and oil and also made woodcut prints. I've never seen or found any of her printwork.
Saint Ansfried, Ansfridus or Aufridus (born ca. 940 - died may 3th 1010 in then convent of Hohorst near Amersfoort. A nobelman in the Holy Roman Empire. Untill 995 earl of Hoei, later bishop of Utrecht. Founder of the convents of Thorn (990) and Hohorst. Declared Saint, celibrated on the day of his death: May 3th.
These paintings in oil by Edith Pijpers have a very woodblock print atmosphere. Hopefully I'll find more examples of her prints one day.
Update 2011, march 29th:This oilpainting was send march 29th by reader Bob Verheyden. Thank you for sharing.
