I must be honest, I bought these prints more for their beautiful wooden frames, than the artworks themselves, although that being said there’s something very calming about these gentle landscapes.
GJ Beukes was a South African oil painter who was active during the first half of the twentieth century. There doesn’t seem to be much information available about him online, but from what I can gather he seemed to concentrate on South African landscapes, with most of his paintings having the same serene palette. Todays prints are in good condition for their years, and the frames (which I think are sooooo lovely!) are also in pretty decent nick, with only minor signs of wear and tear. If like me, it’s the frames that you’re in love with, rather than the prints, you could easily re-use the wooden frames for other photos or artworks – you could even swap the glass out for a piece of mirror, and for not a lot of money you could have a really attractive mirror (or two!).
Note: We have four frames for sale today – I just couldn’t get them all in one shot. One of the frames is slightly larger than the other three (see middle frame in the first photo), and two of the smaller prints are identical (see second photo)
Dimensions: Smaller frames – 51cm long x 40.5cm wide x 3.5cm deep; Larger frame – 57cm long x 42.5cm wide x 3.5cm deep
