Houbraken especially liked a piece where a maid holds a mouse by the tail as a cat jumps for lieutenant Houbraken wrote that while Slingelandt was working on a family portrait for the gentleman Francois Meerman (1630–1672), he is said to have taken 6 weeks to paint the lace of one child"s bib. That painting currently hangs in the Louvre.
He remained a member until 1668, and after a break of five years began paying dues again from 1673-1680.
In 1690 he became headman, and in 1691 deacon of the guild. Though he appears in the catalogue raisonné of C. Hofstede de Groot, the only painting mentioned there is one that is no longer attributed to Slingelandt.
His pupils were Jacob van der Sluys, and January Tilius. Adriaen van Gaesbeeck, who was also sometimes mentioned as a pupil of Slingelandt, was in reality 19 years older and died when Slingelandt was only 9 years old.
