How it works


Pierneef was born in Pretoria and lived there for the greater part of his life. In 1957 he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Pretoria and it is fitting that the initiative and support for this work came from the vice-chancellor and rector, Prof. D. M. Joubert, who is himself a great admirer of Pierneef.

The book contains the true life story of one of South Africa's greatest artists. His love of nature is represented in an unique and original way through his work. He painted nature in the way he, as both a person and an artist, experienced it.
