South African 1935-2007Live Works
The urge to paint surfaced early during Pretoria-born Adriaan Boshoff’s childhood. This self-taught painter worked primarily in oil and excelled at portraying landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and figures in everyday life, in his unmistakable impressionistic style. Some of his most memorable works are scenes of the South African veld with cattle grazing and romanticised visions of childhood.
Often referred to as the ‘Renoir’ of South Africa, Boshoff said that he wanted to capture the fleeting moments of life before they are gone forever. His work has been exhibited and is collected throughout the world. In 2018 Strauss & Co sold It was a Good Day, a magnificent work depicting fisherfolk and their catch, for R1 024 200.
