Alfred Krenz (1899-1980)

Born in Vienna, after his fathers untimely death, Alfred attended grammer school, where he studied architecture. He was able to travel throughout Europe and in 1949, moved to Cape Town. He began his career as a portrait artist but slowly developed his own vernacular, difficult to quantify within the realms of a specific genre, and with his unique palette and broad stroke entered the South African art gentry with vigour. Sometimes compared to as the South African Gauguin, Krenz established himself as a significant artist within both the local and international markets.

We can also assist in sourcing, picture framing, hanging, restoration, valuation and resale of art works, as well as curate spaces and oversee collections.
