Artist's Description

from Page 70, “Alleen Op De Wereld” , by Hector Malot, illustrated by G. van Raemdonck, 1940 edition, translated from the French into Dutch by A.D. Hildebrand and these few line, freely translated by me, from the Dutch into English:
I looked at the stars and I listened to the silence. There was no wind and no leaves rustled. No birds whistled and there were no vehicles on the road. We were alone, deserted, lonely.
Tears came to my eyes and, suddenly, I began to cry because I was thinking of poor mother Barbarin and that poor old Vitalis. I had lain down on my stomach, with my head in my hands, and I just couldn’t stop crying. But then I suddenly felt something going through my hair. Quickly I turned around, and it was Capi, licking me. He had heard me crying and he came to console me, just like on that first evening
I threw my arms around his neck and I kissed his wet nose. Briefly he seemed to cry softly too.

When I woke up, the sun was high in the sky and Capi sat looking at me. ………







Rather than Inspired by Rembrandt (That was last year!) I am now inspired by van Raemdonck (and Hector Malot).
