Jan Sluijters
Jan Sluijters Jan Sluijters

Jan Sluijters (Den Bosch, 1881 – Amsterdam, 1957) was a Dutch painter, draughtsman, watercolourist and graphic designer. At the age of twelve, he made illustrations for a French drawing book, and that same year he started his studies at the Koninklijke School voor Nuttige en Beeldende Kunsten (‘Royal Academy of Arts and Design’) in Den Bosch. Later, as a teenager, he graduated from the Rijksnormaalschool voor Teekenonderwijs (‘National School for Art Education’) in Amsterdam. Together with Leo Gestel he received lessons from August Allebé at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (‘National Academy of Visual Arts’) in Amsterdam.

In 1904, Jan Sluijters won the renowned art prize, the Prix de Rome. With the prize money and scholarship, he travelled to various European cities such as Rome, Naples, Paris, Florence and Venice. During his stay in Paris, the artist began to paint more in the Fauvism and Impressionist styles and painted more contemporary and everyday scenes. This was not appreciated by the jury, however, and his scholarship was discontinued. In 1934, when his career was in full swing, Jan Sluijters became a juror himself. His early work consisted mainly of religious and historical scenes, but later he also painted landscapes, portraits and nudes.
