Jacob Hendrik Pierneef was born on 13 August 1886in Pretoria.  Pierneef realised his love for painting rom a very young age, and was continuously inspired and intrigued by old Bushmen paintings.  Pierneef cherished a deep love and admiration for the African Busveld and this is clearly demonstrated in his art.  Pierneef was adamant to develop his own unique style in which he without a doubt succeeded.  JH Pierneef passed away on 4 October 1957, leaving behind his legacy of uniqueness which he so desperately longed for.
