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.

  • Interesting exhibition of Jean Thomassen that you can see well because there are a hordes of people inside. This painting is so much to see that it also requires more time to discover the content of the works.
