Finishing touches are being done to a new museum in Gauteng that will be dedicated to the life and work of one of South Africa’s pre-eminent painters, Adriaan Boshoff. The Adriaan Boshoff Museum, situated in the Francolin Conservancy, (midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria), will open its doors on March the 15th this year. Curator of the exhibition, Marié Antoinette Odendaal, says the museum complex is set to display about 140 of the acclaimed impressionist artist’s paintings. The museum will eventually boast over 500 artifacts, also including work from several other artists such as Gregoire Boonzaier, Hugo Naudé and Conrad Theys. Adriaan Boshoff, a self-taught painter, was born in Pretoria in 1935 and died in April 2007, aged 72.
