Harold Voigt – The Poetry of Sight
In 2006, Galley Press published HAROLD VOIGT, The Poetry of Sight, written by Cyril Coetzee. This exquisite publication features a wide selection of reproductions of paintings and a number of drawings and photographs. Harold Voigt has, over the past 49 years, produced an impressive œuvre which distinguishes him as one of South Africa’s finest painters. His works range from landscapes and animal studies to abstracts, and the later contemplative interiors. However varied the subject matter of his paintings, the brilliance of execution ensures that in each instance that timeless moment is reached when craftsmanship transcends into art, and each painting resonates with a life of its own.
This book will delight those who relish fine painting.
Cyril Coetzee, writer, lecturer, and painter himself, has explored the work of Harold Voigt, and offers an insight into the fascinating world of Voigt’s painterly laboratory, his visual vocabulary, and extraordinary craftsmanship.
