Ferdinand Gustaaf Willem Oldewelt (Amsterdam, August 19, 1857 - Laren, April 22, 1935); Dutch painter.
Ferdinand Oldewelt enjoyed his education at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam from 1871 to 1878, where he studied under the direction of Prof. August Allebé. He then completed his studies at the Antwerp Academy as a pupil of, among others, Karel Verlat. In 1891 he was appointed head teacher at the school for applied arts in Haarlem, after which he was appointed director of the Academy Minerva in Groningen in 1896. After this he was appointed head teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts and Technical Sciences in Rotterdam in 1903, to which institute he remained connected until his retirement in 1922. He was teacher of Pieter den Besten, Gesina Boevé, Alida van Houten, Herman Mees, Henri Minderop and J.H.E. Schilling.
In 1890 he was one of the first painters to paint in the later artists' village of Laren, but it was not until 1922 that he settled there.
