Adriaan Boshoff is a well known self-taught South African artist who was born in Pretoria in 1935 and this impressionist captured the hearts and minds of many with his landscapes, seascapes, still life and figures that he painted.
He passed away in 2007 and in his memory a beautiful new art museum dedicated to his life and works of the pre is set to open on Friday, March 15, 2019, in the grounds of the Francolin Conservancy, home of the luxurious Orient Hotel and the multi-award-winning Restaurant Mosaic – owned by Chef Chantel Dartnall.
Although there are a number of large collections globally, it is estimated that the Adriaan Boshoff Museum – with its 137 paintings grouped according to themes – has the largest collection of his works. The curator of the exhibition is Marié Antoinette Odendaal.
When complete, the museum complex will house more than 500 works of art that will be on permanent display, including pieces from Alexander Rose-Innes, Gregoire Boonzaier, Robert Gwelo Goodman, William Timlin, Hugo Naudé and Frans Oerder amongst other.
Various sculptures and ceramics will also be exhibited at the museum, alongside more contemporary artists such as Hennie Niemann, Conrad Theys and Lynn-Marie Eatwell.
Although only open to the public at large via prior arrangement, guests staying overnight at the Orient or dining at award-winning Chef Chantel Dartnall’s acclaimed Restaurant Mosaic will have the exclusive opportunity to stroll through this world-class museum to view a feast of fabulous art.
