Gestel, L. Gestel, Leo Gestel born 1881-1941

Leo Gestel (1881 - 1941) Leo Gestel was born in 1881 in Woerden, a town near Utrecht. In around 1907, he developed a luministic style and his work became an explosion of colour. Like Jan Sluijters, Piet Mondriaan and Piet van der Hem, Gestel was seen as an ultra-modern artist. Later on he developed a cubist style and at the end of his life he was influenced by the expressionists. Gestel was known for his landscapes, portraits and still-life, which he produced in oil paint, watercolour and as well in pencil. He also illustrated books
