The exhibition at TAF17 encompasses top examples, ranging from etchings to watercolours and oil paintings, showing the artist’s diversity in all its splendour. Of special note is the collection of etching plates Pierneef used in his lifetime. They will be on exhibition, together with prints pulled from these by Pippa Skotnes from the Michaelis Art School, University of Cape Town.
In addition, the Artist Proof Studio students will demonstrate the linocut technique as part of exhibition. These students study Pierneef’s graphic work as part of their curriculum, and they will be showing how their work is inspired by the master.
“The Turbine Art Fair presents a wonderful opportunity for Strauss & Co to showcase a selection of works from its online-only auction, which will run from 8-18 July 2017. The auction will include a wide variety of works, largely by South Africa’s most loved modern and contemporary artists, at accessible prices. The popularity of online auctions has grown exponentially worldwide, and they are an excellent opportunity for new and emerging collectors to start building a collection, but are growing in popularity among seasoned collectors too. The Turbine Art Fair is the perfect forum for art enthusiasts to see some of the works from Strauss & Co’s online-only auction in the flesh” says Susie Goodman, General manager (JHB), Strauss & Co. Strauss & Co will also be responsible for valuating the exciting JAG exhibition.
