Johannes Carolus Bernardus (Jan) Sluijters (‘s-Hertogenbosch, December 17, 1881 – Amsterdam, May 8, 1957) was a Dutch painter. He also designed posters and was a book binding designer. In 1901 Sluijters became a student of the Rijksakademie of visual arts together with Leo Gestel. Gestel and Sluijters continued to maintain a lot of contact. In 1904 he won the Prix de Rome. He married Bertha Langerhorst in the same year. The Prix de Rome earned him a travel stipend, with which he made study trips to Italy and Spain in 1905 and 1906. In 1906 he became acquainted with fauvism in Paris. The jury of the Prix de Rome considered the work he made from then on to be too modern and therefore stopped his annual allowance. From 1909 to 1911, Sluijters lived and worked in Villa Vita nuova at Hilversumseweg 22-24 in Laren NH, where he divorced Bertha in 1910. In 1911 he moved to Amsterdam and again visited Paris with Leo Gestel. In 1913 he married Greet van Cooten, who would often also be a model for his paintings. In 1917 he became a member of the Amsterdam artists ‘association Pulchri Studio and in 1920 he became a voting member of the Amsterdam artists’ association Arti et Amicitiae. He has also been a member of artistsassembly Sint Lucas. In the years that followed, Sluijters became increasingly known and the number of exhibitions devoted to his work increased. In 1933 he was appointed Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau. He won the Grand Prix at the World Exhibition in Paris, and was commissioned to portray Willem Mengelberg. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam held an overview exhibition to celebrate its sixtieth birthday. Excitement arose when the mayor had some nudes removed at an exhibition in Schiedam, including La chemise rise by Sluijters. He became a member of the Académie Royale de la Belgique. In 1952 he was named Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion. He died in 1957.
