François Bossaerts, also known as Frans Bossaerts, was a Belgian landscape painter, watercolourist and etcher, born in Schaerbeek on August 28, 1879 and died in 1960.

Self-taught, he mainly created countryside landscapes, views of towns and villages, as well as genre scenes, floral and marine compositions. The landscapes from which he draws his inspiration are the Ardennes, the Campine and the Jura. He was a teacher then director of the municipal school in Schaerbeek, a school founded in 1876 by his father François Martin Bossaerts (1839-1914).
