New exhibition in Museum Slager evokes various sentiments

DEN BOSCH - Step into the world of the family Slager. That's the name of the new exhibition Museum Slager, opened by Bishop Gerard de Korte, which lasts until January 10th. Well-known and unknown works by eight artistic family members, spread over three generations, have been brought together. What do the mostly intimate works of art reveal to the visitor? One looks mouth-watering at his dream house, the other sees a part of himself again. And yet another is remotely confronted with a distant relative.
