The artwork of Jan Sluijters is of great importance for Dutch art history. Together with Piet Mondriaan and Leo Gestel, Sluijters was a forerunner in the young avant-garde. From the academy until the First World War, Sluijters experimented with many styles as luminism, fauvism, cubism and expressionism. After the war, he was highly appreciated as a painter of portraits, nudes, flower still lifes and domestic scenes, often with his wife and/or children, in a moderate realistic-expressionistic style.
