Lot Essay

Between 1908 and 1910 Sluijters visited the popular artist's village Heeze in Brabant several times from his home village Laren to paint en plein air. He knew this area well, as he was born in 's-Hertogenbosch and had visited the countryside various times. This resulted in a series of paintings between 1909 and 1910 depicting pastures, farms, blooming orchards and forest lanes near the rural villages Heeze en Leende. His luminist paintings from this period are made in a palette of predominantly blue-green and purple colours, clearly visible in the present lot.
