Artist's Description


Based on the drawing / illustration done by G. van Raemdonck, in my well-worn, well read-to-me, as a young boy, favourite book: Alleen op de Wereld (Alone in the World).
Where English-reading children, of my generation might have (all) read Treasure Island, or followed the adventures of Biggles, a lot of my generation grew up with: Alleen op de Wereld., if they read, or could be read to, in Dutch.

This book was given to me when I was a baby. Read to me several times over by my mother, starting when I was too young for the very sad bits in the book.
………
In 2005, I enjoyed searching for the original French version (Sans Famille), among the second-hand books, for sale, along the River Seine, and, via my daughter, being told that Hector Malot had lived in one of the side streets, near-by.
………
The book has lost its cover and, when I was about 8 or so, I used coloured pencils to " improve " the illustrations by van Raemdonck.
Now I’m doing that again, but with oil paint, on canvas.
