Slaymaker Fine Art Ltd is an original fine art corporation specializing in selling original works of fine art wholesale to the trade. Slaymaker offers fine works of art on paper and canvas of Library of Congress standards to fine art galleries, art dealers and corporate art consultants. The name "Slaymaker" is the English translation for the name Schleierm cher, which originates from the province of Alsace which in later years became part of the empire of Germany. Early Christian art from 313 A.D. to the late 5th century was depicted on veils and draperies in blocky, frontal and unproportionate style. The Schleierm cher family has been an influential manufacturer in the fine art, veil, drapery, and canvas industry in one form or another since the 4th century. The current company, Slaymaker Fine Art Ltd, was established in 1956 by the late Martha Slaymaker and run by Woody Slaymaker since 1979 along with the help of his wife Fangji Slaymaker since 1992. The name Schleierm cher's direct translation means art veil, drapery and canvas maker for homes and not for ships at sea. The logo used today by Slaymaker Fine Art Ltd remains the family coat of arms.
