Frans Stracké

The Dutch Sculptor, Franciscus (Frans) Leonardus Stracké (1849-1919) was the son of Johan Stracké and elder brother of Leo Stracké. It was normal in those times for artists to have apprentices who worked as assistants in order to learn their craft. The sculptor Hendrik Albert van den Eijnde worked as Stracké’s assistant from 1891.
