Gallery in the garden, in Franschhoek

4 October, 2018 | Celebrated South African artist, Anton Smit selects Grande Provence as his exclusive Winelands space.

Anton Smit, well-known for his majestic steel and bronze works, has selected The Gallery at Grande Provence as his exclusive public sculpture exhibition venue in the Cape Winelands.

Famous for his monumental sculptures, evoking themes of suffering, reconciliation, glory and sublimation, Smit’s works grace public and private collections nationally and globally. Some of his works have been purchased by billionaire businessman, Anton Rupert, and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

His body of work includes gigantic human figures, nudes, impressive heads, masks, hands, angels, floating and stretching figures, warriors as well as abstract works, using mostly steel, metal, fiberglass and bronze.

The gallery at Grande Provence showcases a selection of Smit’s best works with regular exhibitions held throughout the year – alongside the work of other local emerging artists.

Two of his majestic sculptures of male figures stand tall at the entrance to the Grande Provence Tasting Room, creating a warm reception for guests visiting the estate. His larger than life metallic head sculptures blend seamlessly into the tranquillity of the Sculpture Garden, where guests can enjoy wine tastings, fresh oysters and relaxed lunches.
