For this drawing, Jan Sluijters depicted his second wife, Greet Sluijters-Van Cooten (1885-1967) with one of their children. Greet was his preferred model and can often be recognized by her reddish hair, big eyes, dominant eyebrows and her serene, somewhat absent look. Jan and Greet had three children, named Jan, Rob and Liesje.
