Relatively little is known about the painter Anna Sluijter. Born in Amsterdam, she lived in Paris for a period and settled in Blaricum in 1917. The abstracted landscapes she submitted for exhibitions of De Onafhankelijken in the 1920s reveal her to be an extremely gifted artist. It is almost certain that she was acquainted with Loe Louber, a younger artist and fellow townswoman originally from Laren. In their work, both artists sought to paint a simplified version of visible reality, concentrating on the surrounding natural landscape. Sluijter's use of colour and of contours to delineate pictorial elements also characterise Louber's work, though Sluijter's work is more lyrical.
