Artist Francine Van Hove Francine Van Hove is a French figurative painter. Born 1942 in Saint-Mandé (Seine, France), she studied in Paris and received a Fine Arts degree with qualifications to teach in secondary schools. After teaching one year at Lycee de Jeunes Filles in Strasbourg, she resigned from her position and decided to come back to Paris in 1964 where she now lives and continues to paint. She is known for her paintings of young women with dreaming attitudes. Her graphic and pictorial techniques are reminiscent of Italian Renaissance painters and Flemish painters of the 16th and 17th centuries. Her work now counts more than 400 paintings, all privately owned, as well as numerous drawings and pastels. In 2014, Alain Blondel, her historic art dealer, retired after having promoted her work for 32 years. Since then, Francine Van Hove is represented by Jean-Marie Oger, former assistant at galerie Alain Blondel.
