Frans Thomas Koppelaar is a Dutch painter, who was born at The Hague, Netherlands. He attended the Royal Academy of Visual Arts at The Hague and after it he moved to Amsterdam in 1968.
His landscapes and Amsterdam cityscapes are painted in a style that recalls the classical tradition of the Hague School and the Amsterdam Impressionists. Koppelaar's work is congenial to a figurative movement in Dutch contemporary painting that evolved during the 90s in a reaction to the pared-down conceptual art and the too pompous art-theories of that period. Through the years his style evolved into a simpler, straightforward approach. By 1984, he no longer identified himself with any art movement.
“I don't believe in longwinded manifestos. The paintings can speak for themselves more honestly than anything I could say. I only paint things for which I have a strong emotional attraction. I am drawn to certain subjects that I return to over and over again. I have always been fascinated by cities with their dazzling structure of buildings, streets, canals, trees, cars and of course people.” (Frans Thomas Koppelaar)
