The fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel is a brilliant and surreal fantasy involving edible houses and cannibalistic witches. But central to the story is the poor Woodcutter’s tragic abandonment of his children under instructions from their cruel stepmother, and this exquisite picture is a beautifully painted representation of the sympathetic characters and the pathos of their parting.
