Adriaan Boshoff



Adriaan Boshoff was born in Pretoria in 1935 and died 18 April 2007. He is a self-taught painter of landscapes, seascapes, still life and figures. Adriaan works in oils and has become known for portraying everyday scenes in his unmistakable impressionistic style. His work has been exhibited and collected throughout the world. Adriaan Boshoff is one of the great impressionists painting today. He is a reclusive man, an artist who is only really happy in his studio surrounded by paint and canvass. But, if any art can be termed an investment, Boshoff’s work comes the closest. Boshoff is first and always a South African and some of his most memorable works are landscapes depicting the veld with cattle crazing. They have about them the epitome of that elusive spirit that makes South African émigrés long for home and dream of sun-baked days on the stubby veld.
