ANTON ANREITH - SCULPTOR

Johannes Meintjes'  rare book on the South African sculptor Anton Anreith is now available. 

From the foreword:

"Although this is a slender book, it covers all known material on South Africa's first European sculptor. It is the first book on him, the first artistic evaluation of his work and the first attempt to consider all his work or that attributed to him. With a book of this nature one cannot claim completeness as there is always the possibility of new material coming to light.

All the photographs are from the Elliott collection and they are reproduced with the kind permission of The Archives, Cape Town, to whom grateful acknowledgement is extended. I wish to thank all those who assisted me in making this study."
