Notes

Painted in 1950, this landscape, titled Bushveld Game Reserve, is part of a theme and body of work which occupied the artist throughout his life. These bushveld landscapes from the 1940s and 1950s have certain formal compositional similarities but retain their unique distinctions, some with marked variations on that theme. This work, rendered in a lively palette of green, ochre, yellow, orange and red against a blue and grey sky, alludes to the time of year it was painted. Springtime also heralds the arrival of summer rains illustrated by the rising cumulonimbus cloud in the background.

 

Provenance

Acquired from the artist by the current owner's grandfather and thence by descent.
