About this Item

South African 1886-1957
An Extensive Mountain Landscape
oil on board
22 by 29,5cm excluding frame


This painting belonged to Duncan Stuart Linney of Loch Linney in southern Scotland, who was employed in South Africa as a school inspector by the then Transvaal Boer government and assisted with educational reforms.

Linney bought this painting from Emil Schweickerdt in Pretoria and it has remained in the possession of Linney's family since.  Schweickerdt, who had established his art and framing business in 1902, was an early patron of local artists. In 1912 he bought Pierneef's first oil painting, Meintjieskop - the beginning of an association that lasted throughout Pierneef's lifetime.


Emil Schweickerdt, Pretoria.

Duncan Stuart Linney and thence by descent.
