Frans Claerhout was born in Pittem, West Flanders in 1919, and moved to South Africa as a missionary for the Catholic Church in 1946, at the age of 27. He stayed on a farm near Bloemfontein in the Free State province of South Africa. He worked as a priest and in his spare time he concentrated on his art.
He started painting more after relocating to Thaba Nchu in 1960, and became famous for his unique style, which used vivid colors and incorporated items such as donkeys, sunflowers and figures of people he met through his everyday life. Claerhout died of pneumonia at age 87 in 2006.
Examples of his work, characterised by their warm colours, thick impasto paint, exaggerated forms, humour and compassion were exhibited widely in South Africa, as well as in Belgium, Canada, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom.— www.wikipedia.org

His most popular work include still-lifes of copper and flowers, especially cosmos and sunflowers. His masterpieces of landscapes, animal studies and architecture can be seen in houses and offices all over Taiwan, USA, Israel and France.
“ A search for the essence”, that is how South African born artist Ignatius Marx describes his work. Inspired by his surrounds and his love for nature, his paintings and drawings capture that which is essentially Africa – the bush and its animals and the spectacular and often harsh and savage beauty of its landscape. As a master Draughtsman, figure and line-work form an integral part of his repertoire. His work is expressed through several media, his favorite being pastel and oils. His work combines keen understanding of his media with unsurpassed technique and intense observation.
Close scrutiny reveals a strong sense of color and composition, blending together to make his work a highly desired and much sought after collector’s item; not surprisingly that his work is exported as far as America, Australia, the Far-East and Europe.
Ignatius Marx resides and has his studio overlooking the Indian Ocean in the sleepy village of Umdloti in KwaZulu-Natal.
