Notes

“Volgens die inskripsie op Cold Man at the Sea, wat ons by die volgende jaar se uitstelling aangekoop het, lei ek af dat dit ’n skets was wat hy in 1986 reeds gemaak het en in 1999 met waterverf en pastel oorgewerk het.”

“According to the inscription on Cold Man at the Sea, which we purchased at the following year’s exhibition, I deduce that it was a sketch he had already made in 1986 and reworked in 1999 with watercolours and pastels.” —Dr Matthys J Strydom, 2021
