Behind the distinguished façade of the Slager Museum, visitors will encounter a collection of paintings, drawings, engravings, watercolours and objects, all directly related to this family of painters. The museum is located at 8 Choorstraat, not far from St. John's Cathedral.The Slager FamilyThe founder of the Slager painting dynasty was Petrus Marinus Slager. Four of his children, Piet, Frans, Jeannette and Corry, were also artistically gifted and followed in their father's footsteps. Piet and Frans were both married to an artist, Piet's wife was Suze Velsen, Frans' wife was Marie van Gilse. Grandson Tom Slager represents the third generation. With the death of Tom, who had no children, the male line of the Slager family became extinct.The Slager family played a prominent role in the cultural life of 's-Hertogenbosch. For years they were involved in the former Koninklijke School (Royal School), the precursor of today's Art Academy in the city. As art teachers, the painters of the Slager family were also a source of inspiration to a great many students.CollectionThe three successive generations of the Slager family span the period from the Renaissance Revival to Post-Impressionism. Their works date between 1861 and 1994, their chosen subjects range from cityscapes of the old town of 's-Hertogenbosch, village scenes and landscapes of Brabant, the Belgian Campine and southern Europe, to still lifes, flowers and portraits.Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Den Bosch trip simple and quick.
