Pierneef at La Motte

I LOVE Jakob Hendrik Pierneef's work! Currently the Rupert Museum is exhibiting the Station Panels. But the Rupert family has, as part of their permanent collection, a gallery at La Motte with exquisite pieces! The collection is truly amazing and documents the evolution of Pierneef's life's work.
I love the landscapes, the colours are truly amazing... When one travels through the African landscape at sunrise and sunset one sees where these colours come from.
But somehow I think the trees trump the landscapes. The simplicity of the monochromatic prints just do it for me! Treat yourself for lunch or breakfast at the Pierneef Restaurant in Franschhoek and enjoy these gorgeous pieces!
