Walk Andreas Schotel Route

2 hours (10.0 km)

Andreas Schotel was a graphic artist from Rotterdam, who loved the Kempen region. This love inspired him to make many etchings in which he depicted Brabant farm life.

The thing that makes this walk so special is that Schotel’s work takes you through the development of agriculture in the 20th century. Gradually, manual labour disappeared from the fields and more and more machines were introduced. Andreas Schotel's work in turn inspired other artists who reimagined his etchings and created new works.
