11242 Franspost           Discovered 1971 Mar. 25 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Dutch painter Frans Post (1612-1680) was one of the first European-trained artists to paint in the Americas. He recorded various aspects of life and the local atmosphere of Dutch Brazil, or Nieuw Holland, in his paintings.
