Jan Neethling has, over the years, made a name for himself as a distinguished artist. For some fifty years he has creatively collaborated with one of South Africa's foremost artists, Robert Hodgins. Until recently, Jan was little known outside Johannesburg.

This, was partly due to his own modest and introvert nature, as well as to the generous attitude with which he unconditionally welcomed and supported each and every success Robert Hodgins achieved with is art. There is no doubt, however, that from the moment they met, Robert became Jan?s mentor and muse.

Jan Neethling's surprisingly animated figures dominate his canvasses. He is an accomplished painter of life on the move, and even the occasional landscape or still-life he produces will seem as much concerned with the human absence, as they might with a table leg, objects in a room, trees or the lie of the land. They display the same brushstrokes and sense of living presence that we see in the figurative pictures.
