Francis Jean "Frank" Haseler
"Frank" was born in Menton, France in 1928. His French mother and Australian-born father came to England in 1935 where their eldest son was educated at St Benedict's School in Ealing, London. His talent and industry for drawing and painting was recognised by his father from an early age and he was encouraged to pursue this at the Ealing School of Art. He furthered his studies in commercial art, design and illustration, whilst his life drawing skills were further developed under the tutelage of Frank Auerbach.
His career started in advertising, working for one of London's top agencies, Smee's. In the mid 1960s he joined Grestock & Marsh, who represented some of the UK's finest illustrators, including John Heseltine, Fred Laurent, and Gerry Fancett. For some 14 years Frank's illustrations appeared weekly in magazines such as Woman, Woman's Own and numerous Scandinavian publications. His work included a number of commissions for book jackets, advertising and fashion houses.
He continued working as an illustrator until the mid 1970s when he moved to Geneva. It was then he was able to concentrate on fine art. Through his love of drawing and the revelation from studies of old masters, Frank focussed on nudes and landscapes, working in both watercolour and oil.
He returned to England in 1984 and continued "the adventure" of painting until his death in 1998. He produced his best nude watercolours during this period which were both exhibited and sold at a number of galleries in London and Surrey.
