Francois Hollaardt (Rotterdam, October 27, 1916 – Scheveningen, December 20, 1993) – painter and draftsman – lived and worked in Soest and from 1951 in The Hague (Scheveningen). He was a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague. His work is located in: Central Museum Utrecht (including caravan watercolor); The Hague Municipal Museum with 27 drawings; The National Collection (including studio corner and a number of drawings); and The Lakenhal Leiden (painting 'Demolition Amsterdam'). Working period: 1931-1993 The work of Franciscus Adrianus (Frans/Francois) Hollaardt as a painter and draftsman is characterized by first making a rough design. The sketch is then accentuated with pencil and then filled in with waterproof ink. His goaches, watercolors and oil paintings exude a free and flowing Cobra-like approach. He combines his artistic mastery with spontaneity. This creates an own style in which the special atmosphere of the 1950s is recognizable.
