CantrĂ© was the eldest brother of Jozef CantrĂ©. He studied in Ghent and was a founding member of l'Association des Xylographes (woodcuts) and he was also a member of La Gravure Originale Belge. CantrĂ© excelled in expressionist style woodcuts and this is a nice example of his work. Woodcut, in general, flourished in Belgium in the 1920s and 1930s and many of the prints from the time appeared in book and portfolio format, often unsigned.      SOLD
