9781868124794: Painting in South Africa

An account of the pictures and people that have played a role in the modern history of South African art. The story opens in the second half of the 19th-century and charts the course of modern South African painting, from the descriptive records of the "Africana painters", through the various experimental forms of modernism, to the revisionist perceptions of end-of-the-century South Africa. The stylistic developments are dealt with in the context of the local circumstances and environment in which they occurred, but are also viewed against the background of world events and international artistic trends. The sources, aims and characters of many different styles and individual works of art are clearly illustrated and explained. The reproductions of works of art have been drawn, where possible, from public collections, thereby affording the reader the opportunity to study the original works of art in conjunction with the text.
