Hennie Niemann and Derrick Benzien first formed a friendship and then a unique partnership to market the works of both South African Old Masters and more contemporary artists by establishing The Onrus Gallery at the beginning of 2008 and the Art Gallery in December 2008.
Today Hennie numbers among the country’s senior and most revered living artists, with a career of virtually five decades, nearly three of them full-time. His knowledge of South African Art is well regarded. Derrick has been dealing in art across the country for several years and has a sound rapport with many galleries, auction houses, collectors and artists.
Their shared passion about and expertise in art is evident in the tasteful manner in which they display works in an atmosphere that is conductive to promoting it’s dignity. Hennie’s own paintings are now marketed exclusively through The Onrus Gallery. An impressive CV containing of his best works is available to browse through.
Their galleries house works by Stern, Gregoire, Buchner, Boshoff, Van Essche, Van Heerden, Wallace, Naude, and other important names. Corporate and collectors of investment are well accommodated. The partners (who takes turns in being available at all times) have a mission both to share their love of art and render advice (free of charge) to any visitors.
Works are sourced locally and overseas, on consignment or by direct purchase.
We offer free evaluations on Old Master oil paintings. Should you wish to have us evaluate the artwork, please bring the artwork to the Onrus Gallery at 2 Lagoon Drive, Onrus, or email us a photo of the artwork and the size (excluding frame) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
