Marie Slager - van Gilse
Baarle Duke 1891 – 1968 Turnhout.
Her work shows affinity with impressionism. Thematically she was very versatile. She became skilled in painting landscapes, still lifes, flower arrangements and portraits. Marie's premise was that art colors life. Her source of inspiration was nature, with flowers and plants in particular, and she developed her own distinct style.
With Frans she lived resp. in Vught and in Meerhout (Belgium). They had no children.
