Description

Gregoire Boonzaier (1909 – 2005)
Gregoire Johannes Boonzaier was a South African artist well known for his landscapes, portraits and still life paintings. He was a famous exponent of Cape Impressionism, a founder of the New Group, and a contributor, through his art works, to the struggle against apartheid.
In 1923 his first two oil paintings were shown at Ashbey’s Gallery in Cape Town, simply signed “GREGOIRE”. His first one-man exhibition followed two years later – he was to hold more than 100 one-man exhibitions during his painting career.
Boonzaier received three honorary doctorates. His numerous prizes and awards included the silver Order for Meritorious Service presented by Nelson Mandela in 1999. His work is to be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world.
