Avant-garde art Roelof Frankot

Roelof Frankot (25 November 1911, in Meppel, Drenthe – 1 December 1984, in Heeten near Raalte) was a Dutch painter. By education he was a photographer, but in 1930, he started painting. He later had a strong relation with the CoBrA movement, and his artworks are quite similar to some of the art from the CoBrA movement. They are very abstract and spontaneous paintings in strong colours. Oil on canvas was his preferred medium. Publications with his art were occasionally accompanied by small poems that he wrote himself. Frankot has been considered an innovator of Dutch art with all its great traditions. Frankot died at the age of 73 from cancer.
During his career Frankot made a huge number of exhibitions in Europe, the United States and Latin America.Wikipedia
