Book number 138 of 300, English/ Afrikaans, full-colour plates of paintings, 280 x 220mm, condition: very good. Sadly the front end paper has been removed due to a possible personal inscription.
The book posits the Nativity of Jesus, metaphysically speaking, and the paintings are therefore a modern prayer of faith. The book's first Nativity was Christmas 1998, the year of publication.
Claerhout moved to South Africa as a Catholic missionary in 1946. He started painting seriously after moving to Thaba Nchu in 1960. He has a unique style, incorporated items such as donkeys, sunflowers and figures of everyday people using vivid colours.
Also a sketch in ink on another blank frontal page with word: Groete van Vader Claerhout.
