Biography Amos Archibald Langdown
Amos Langdown was born in Plettenberg Bay in 1940. Trained as a teacher
at the Zonnebloem College in Cape Town, he was involved in the South
African schooling system for many years, maintaining a balance between
his passion for teaching and his artistic practise. Langdown’s first
solo exhibition in 1960, while he was studying part-time at the
Michaelis School of Fine Art, resulted in him being awarded a government
grant to study abroad. The influence and guidance of his mentor,
Katrine Harries, during this period is evident in his work with its firm
basis in draughtsmanship, composition and its graphic quality.
