Notes

"It is somehow always springtime in Naudé’s canvases: the veld blooms, the sky is clear, the river ripples by. He chose the picturesque views and revelled in the brilliant splash of wildflowers carpeting the valleys, but he concentrated on capturing the general atmosphere rather than on defining detail. The charm of his work lies in their bracing, open air freshness as much as prettiness of content. A sense of composition, stemming from the disciplines of formal training (at the Slade in London and the Kunstakademie in Munich), secures the underlying structure of the picture even when the scene dissolves in coloured flecks of sketchy paint."
