How it works

Register

Signed by John Meyer, this is becoming an increasingly difficult catalogue to find.

My Country is a catalogue of a collection of paintings from a commissioned series which took two years to complete. Meyer painted ten of the most arresting vistas that embody, for him, the essence of this country. It was created in response to a collectors desire to have a coherent body of iconic works that celebrated the diversity and beauty of South Africa.

When confronted by these paintings one is reminded of J.H. Pierneef's 'Station Panels', which were commissioned in 1929, and one suspects that eighty years hence they will represent a similarly legacy defining project for Meyer. Very small and minor crease on the bottom corner (see pic 2), otherwise in excellent, as new condition.
