Leo Gestel, Drawing for Baudelaire’s L’Albatros

Leo Gestel (Dutch, 1881-1941). Like Piet Mondrian, he was an important artist of Dutch modernism. Leo Gestel worked in cubism, expressionism, futurism and postimpressionism. Work in Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, Alkmaar, Drents Museum, Assen, Museum De Hallen, Haarlem, Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem, Singer Laren, Laren, Kröller-Müller museum, Otterlo, Museum van Bommel van Dam, Venlo, all museums are in The Netherlands.

As an artist making illustrations for coloring books I have an interest in the illustration throughout time. In the pipparossi.com blog series a Journey through time in illustrations we explore some art works from the past. Each post describes a different artwork. In this post we exhibit Leo Gestel.
