    There is usually a certain distance between the painter and his model. The painter is mainly concerned with modeling with light and color, although his personal preference plays a role. In this 1909 nude by Leo Gestel, the viewer enters 'the intimate zone'. She is so close, the distance seems to have disappeared. Special, because Gestel makes the work in his 'luministic period'. The time when he was intrigued by light effects and tried to capture them in color on canvas. Mostly landscapes are the subject for his luminist paintings and sometimes a nude like this special composition, but usually (lying down) full length.
