Johannes Josephus Aarts. Part 1B : Salt of the Dutch eart. Woodcuts.
Throughout both (what I’ve called Parts 1 & 2) periods where his subject matter began with the Dutch farmworkers, dyke workers etc. & moved to a time around 1930-1930 where he drew from popular mythology & his own imagination, Aart consistently used a more graphic, less detailed & more powerful aesthetic, often using a woodcut technique to express himself. This post covers this area of his work.
