Amos Langdown

AMOS LANGDOWN (1930-2006)…

“When I dip my brush into paint, I dip it into my soul, and he who cannot appreciate this must have a blank in his soul!”

This gifted artist was born in Plettenberg Bay in 1930 as a son of an open ocean whaler who later did ‘odd jobs’ as an income. His dad brought home dirty paint brushes after a day’s work and Amos would then take little bits of this dried paint to paint his earliest paintings as a child. He remembered painting since the age of four sometimes with pieces of charcoal.

Adriaan Boshoff


Adriaan Boshoff is known as one of South Africa’s greatest impressionist artists and manages to capture an impression with eye and soul and recreate it into dabs of colour on canvas. He is an expert on colour, being able to create two hundred different colours from three basic colours and developed a perceptive eye to observe colours which most others fail to see.


He portrays everyday scenes in his own unmistakable impressionistic style. His subject matter is landscapes, seascapes and figurative, mostly in oils. Many of his figurative studies portray a romantic-impressionism with a Victorian atmosphere.
