Footnotes

  • A similar work, The Lodge is illustrated in E. Berman, Painting in South Africa (Pretoria, 1993, pg. 31, ill. 20), and helps us date this work to the latter years of Wenning's life:

    "Most of the remianing four years of his life he spent in Cape Town, painting with obsessional dedication. Of his ultimate oeuvre of approximately 300 oil canvases, at least two-thirds are scenes of the quiet wooded suburbs and the picturesque old corners of the Mother City."
