This work originates from the collection of a friend of the artist, who obtained it from the artist’s estate.

Jaap Oudes (1926-1998), son of painter Dirk Oudes, was a Dutch artist. From an early age, he was encouraged by his father to start drawing. 'You don't have to go to an academy to learn it', he would always say. As an autodidact, Jaap continued to draw throughout his entire life, almost always with pencil and coloured pencil. Oudes was mostly inspired by folk art and stories of Felix Timmermans and other Flemish narrators. It was only natural for him to follow in Brueghel’s footsteps.

Drawings by Jaap Oudes cannot be categorised into an art movement in art history, but could be described as folk surrealism. His work is cheerful and humorous and seems influenced by the subconscious. Jaap Oudes always resisted a rational analysis of his work. Drawing was a spontaneous and intuitive process to him.

About the work:

Damme is the city of Tijl Uilenspiegel. And in the drawings of Jaap Oudes, he is always depicted with an owl and a mirror in his hand. Here together with his girlfriend Nele on a horse and once again, Tijl can be found in the tree. In addition, you can spot a mountain mill, St. Martin's church (Kern Sijsele) and the castle of Oostkerke.

Please note. In order to capture the pieces in photos, two small blue magnets were used in the upper corners.
