Pierneef accepted a commission in 1929 to paint 32 panels for the interior of the then-new Johannesburg Railway Station, considered to be some of his best work. In 1933, he was commissioned to do seven murals for South Africa House, the South African embassy on Trafalgar Square, London. Pierneef completed this work in 1934. He died in 1957, Pretoria.
This is part of a painting by Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef, which was used on a South African stamp. Pierneef (1886–1957) was a South African landscape artist. His work was greatly influenced by the South African landscape, particularly of the Highveld savannah areas around Johannesburg and north of there.
