Note: "Dorus" van Oorschot worked in an impressionistic style and often the area of Brabant provided his subject matter. His colouring is more exuberant than that of the earlier Dutch Impressionism of the Hague School. Until 1972 he lived in a house and attached studio at the Dokter Poelestraat, near the centre of Schijndel. He then moved to the Venushoek just west of Schijndel. On the corner of Schootsestraat and Venushoek a statue of van Oorschot was erected in his honour. The largest collection of over 150 paintings by Dorus van Oorschot, is held by the Jan Heestershuis Museum and in 2010 they staged a major retrospective exhibition in honour of his 100th birthday. He enjoyed popularity all around Europe and especially in the UK.
