Footnotes

  • A similar work is illustrated in E. Berman, Painting in South Africa, (Pretoria, 1993), appendix, colour plate 3. Berman comments:

    "Naudé is probably best known for his distinctive handling of the fields of brilliant orange daisies which transform the semi-desert of Namaqualand each spring.

    "This is an evocative, rather than imitative, image of the subject. Although it may be possible to identify the very spot from which the scene was painted, the artist himself was more concerned with capturing the quality of this particular landscape than with the definition of its details.

    "His observations led him to devise techniques that would convey the special character of the environment in which he painted. He was the first local artist to adapt his style to the distinctive sunlit atmosphere of the South African landscape."
