Footnotes

  • In 1919, Pierneef resigned from his job as a librarian and began to pursue painting on a full-time basis. This early work suggests that Pierneef was an artist of his time; indulging in an impressionistic style, complete with painterly brushwork and a concerted devotion to exploring the effects of light.
