This is already the eighth print drawn by Hedwig Pauwels at the request of the Dutch Museum of Lithography for the annual Exlibriswereld exchange day. In this print we see the spring fairy who inspires nature, especially flora and fauna, to shed their winter coats. The time of brightness and color has come again!
Hedwig Pauwels (1934) is an internationally acclaimed phenomenon. Among other things, he taught graphic techniques for 40 years at the Higher Institute for Art Education in Hasselt (BE).
