DE WILDE JAGER

monotype printing ink and pen on paper
1978 - 234 x 302 mm

The title is influenced by a song by Boudewijn De Groot / Lennaert Nijgh and also by Le Chasseur Maudit by César Franck, and by Schubert & Goethe's song Der Erlkönig. All go back to a Germanic story called The Wild Hunt which could forebode a thunderstorm but also death.
At the time I was still convinced I was going to die around my 28th birthday.
