How it works


  • In Afrikaans; published more than thirty years ago, this remains the most authoritative work on one of South Africa's foremost painters; copies in such good condition are seldom seen
  • Contributors: the Editor and O J O Ferreira, Estelle E Pretorius, Marita Bailey-Pierneef (the artist's daughter), Gre van der Walt-Braakma, Wynand en Eleanore Smit, and Marie van Heerden 

Dustjacket illustrated by one of the artist's colour landscapes, brown cloth-boards gilt to spine, plain endpapers and 263 pp of prelims, text and captions profusely illustrated in colour with the paintings of J H Pierneef, whose stylised clouds and trees were perhaps best represented in his series of 32 large colour canvases of South African landscapes in the concourse of the old Johannesburg railway station

The copy is very good throughout - complete, unmarked and undiscoloured
