Background information:
Zweitse Landsheer (1928-2010) studied at the Instituut voor Kunstnijverheidsonderwijs (IvKNO) as of 1945, the current Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. His teachers were W. de Vries, Th. Dobbelmann and Mart Stam. In 1948, there is a forced interruption of his studies. It is continued in 1951 and he graduates from the IvKNO. He joins the Koninklijke Fabrieken Goedewaagen in Gouda in 1952 as a designer. He marries Anna Luijnenburg in 1954. He becomes a member of the ‘Industriële Ontwerpers’ in 1955. In 1955, there is also an exhibition of ‘Goudse Keramisten’ in the Stedelijk Gemeentemuseum in Gouda.

Zweitse teaches at the Koninklijke Academie voor Kunst en Vormgeving in 's-Hertogenbosch from 1957 through 1961. He ends his work at Goedewaagen in 1959 and becomes general and artistic director at the Cor Unum pottery in Den Bosch.

Zweitse has been in charge as designer and artistic lead at Cor Unum for almost thirty years, from 1959 through 1987. Besides his job as a director at Cor Unum, he also becomes interim director at the Gemeentelijke Dienst Werkvoorziening in 1964. He works as an independent visual artist as of 1988. Zweitse is a friend of Henk Verberkmoes since his education in Amsterdam. Zweitse celebrates his 80th birthday in an exuberantly way in 2008. He passed away in Rosmalen on 3 February 2010.
