Boat On The Shore

Christiaan Nice was a self-taught South African painter, who specialised in impressionist-style oil paintings. Born in 1939 in Pretoria, his paintings can be categorised as contemporary scenes that carry a strong likeness to the country’s scenery. To this end, he has earned high regard both locally and internationally. His subject matter includes muted still life depictions of donkey carts, village scenes, harbour scenes, District Six Cape scenes, landscapes and studies of children, among others. Across his diversified subject matter, his works all carry the same innate sense of peace which creates a calm feeling within the viewer. Having passed away in October of 2020, Christiaan Nice leaves behind a remarkable and timeless legacy. His paintings continue to inspire and beautify spaces, as they grow in value and rarity.
