Frans Swagers

The Netherlands 1756 - France 1836

Frans Swagers was a Dutch painter who left Utrecht at the end of 18th century to establish himself in Paris. Here he married Elizabeth Meri (1775-1837) who was an accomplished miniature painter.
Swagers exhibited his works several times and in 1802 and 1804 he showed a range of landscape paintings depicting the surroundings of Rotterdam, Dordrecht, Utrecht and the river Schelde near Antwerp. These were all well received by the Parisians and Swagers established himself as a true landscape artist.
