Nel Erasmus

South African 1928- 


Nel Erasmus was a member of the Wits Group, together with Esmé Berman, Christo Coetzee, Larry Scully, Cecil Skotnes and Gordon Vorster. She studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1953 as well as at the Académie Ranson, under Gustave Singier in 1960. Nel was primarily an abstract painter, revealing the essence or ‘life’ of things and ideas through colour and a sense of flux rather depicting appearance. She was the director of the Johannesburg Art Gallery from 1964 until her retirement in 1977.
