JH Pierneef: 1886 – 1957

The Johannesburg Station Panels

“Artist JH Pierneef’s most acclaimed public commission was completed between 1929 and 1932. The Johannesburg Station Panels have been characterised as the epitome of the South African landscape genre. Since 2002 the complete set of thirty two panels – twenty eight landscape and four tree scenes, is on long term loan from the TRANSNET Foundation to the Rupert Art Foundation and have also been exhibited in the Jan Rupert Centre in Graaff-Reinet.” – Introductory remarks from the Rupert Art Foundation catalogue.

Hierdie stasie panele is ‘n nasionale skat. Dit is nog tot die 3de November 2019 op uitstalling by die Rupert Art Foundation in Stellenbosch. Ek sal elkeen aanbeveel om na hierdie kunswerke te gaan kyk indien dit moontlik is. Dit is pragtige groot skilderye wat nie anders kan as om jou asem weg te slaan wanneer jy die vertrek binnestap nie.
