Frans Slager

The Red Hat
Frans Slager (1876 - 1953 was, above all, a painter of landscapes. His paintings bespeak the influence of the Barbizon School. He found his subjects in the Netherlands, notably in the Brabant Campine and in Belgium, France, Germany and Italy. The gothic Saint-John's Cathedral in 's-Hertogenbosch was a source of inspiration for him and was often a characteristic element in his landscapes.
