  • About the artist

    Jan Sluijters was born in Den Bosch in 1881. He was the son of Gijsbertus Antonius Sluijters.
    Jan Sluijters himself had three children called Jan Sluijters (jr.), Lous Sluijters and Eliza Sluijters together with M.F. van Cooten. His son-in-laws were Jacob Kuijper and Kuno Brinks. His paintings feature nude studies, portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.

    Jan Sluijters, together with Piet Mondriaan and Leo Gestel, stands out as one of the truly pioneering Dutch modern artists. In his early years, Sluijters experimented with many different styles. After his visits to Paris his style became more expressive and belonged more to Cubism and Futurism.
    A particularly important part of his oeuvre are his luministic landscapes dating from his early period. After his expressionistic period in the small village of Staphorst in 1916, Sluijters began painting realistic portraits and nudes.

    A number of streets are named after him in the Netherlands, including one in the neighborhood of streets named after 19th and 20th century Dutch painters in Overtoomse Veld-Noord, Amsterdam.

    Jan Sluijters died in Amsterdam in 1957.
