This is an incomplete list of painters in the collection of the Frans Hals Museum, with the number of artworks represented, and sorted by century of birth. For more information about the collection which comprises more than 760 works, see Frans Hals Museum. More than 100 works are by unknown or anonymous painters, and though over 200 individual artists are in the collection, many of these are represented by only one work, which is often a commemorative portrait of a Haarlem politician. The collection was founded by the Haarlem city council and the first gallery was in the city hall itself. The highlights of the collection are the oldest works such as former altarpieces from Haarlem churches, but also large works for other former Haarlem institutions by Frans Hals, Maarten van Heemskerck, and Jan de Bray. Most of the artists in the collection were born in the 16th and 17th centuries. Only four women are represented with works in the collection, namely Judith Leyster, Charley Toorop and the sisters Catharina Jacoba and Christina Gerardus Enschedé.
