diederick painting of western cape household




George Diederick During

1917 - 1991


The Gardener

Diederick's paintings often show the day to day labours of the Cape Malay peoples

set in erstwhile Western Cape rural or urban scenes.

While simple in form and uncomplicated in content, his paintings are indeed filled with expression.

This gardener, although seemingly a little less than enthusiastic,

is accepting of his lot, and plods on to the next task of this new endless day.

Painted in about 1980


It took far too long for a website to emerge to give Diederick the WWW exposure he deserves.
