Pretoria: Artist’s Impressions 1857-2001

Bolsmann, E

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

This book contains an extraordinary collection of paintings and drawings of Pretoria since its founding. It is a fascinating record of Pretoria from a little hamlet on the banks of the Apies River to its development into one of the capitals of the world. The stories behind the paintings and the painters are a laudable contribution to the recording of the history of art in Pretoria.
– Fransi Phillips, Art Critic, Pretoria News

The wealth of Pretoriana illustrated with beautiful paintings makes this long-awaited book a very special treasure indeed. It is the most beautiful book about Pretoria imaginable.
– Pieter van Heerden, Director, Pretoria Association of Arts

With this long-awaited book, Eric Bolsmann has made a valuable contribution to Pretoriana and to Africana in general.
– Dr Phil Minnaar, Chairman, Africana Society


Eric Bolsmann is known for his thoroughly researched writing on subjects dealing primarily with wine and food, art and history. As a painter in oils, Eric is particularly fond of depicting buildings, city scapes, and street scenes. The visual language he applies with a vocabulary that is largely of our time has been described as a ?new realism?, implying that his exquisite sense of composition and perspective on his environment is innovative as well as representative. Another love of his is that of paintings floral studies ?Being born a Germany, I need both, the flowers in the garden and the city,? says Eric. ?Flower studies comfort me and lift my spirit. I listen to Johann Strauss or Mozart when I paint flowers. Painting cityscapes and industrial sites is more arduous, but this, in a strange way, feeds my soul. I need to listen to Beethoven, and sometimes Edward Grieg when I complete such paintings in my studio. I would like to compare the two contrasting themes with two imaginary daughters.
