Leo Gestel, the foreman of 'De Bergense School', takes you through beautiful Bergen in this booklet, in the footsteps of the artists of yesteryear. Where you now most likely bump into a contemporary artist.
This small book, 'In the footsteps of Gestel', was published with the exhibition 'The Secret of Gestel', with a contribution by Caroline Roodenburg about her research and a colorful Gestel walk through Bergen by Karin Evers. Although Gestel only settled in Bergen in 1921, his Portrait of a Woman is linked to the artists' village. The painting comes from the collection of the Bergen patron Piet Boendermaker, which is confirmed by a self-described label on the back. Who the person portrayed is remains a secret for the time being. With his great passion, Leo Gestel was an inspiration for his colleagues in Bergen and beyond. He painted Portrait of a Woman at a time when he was experimenting and developing his very own version of Cubism and Futurism.
