Biography Paul du Toit
South African painter Paul du Toit by-passed the conservative art school and opted for studying art as a private student of Jean Welz. This fortuitous affiliation launched a very successful career and a lifetime friendship with the great Welz. Du Toit's first exhibition was with Welz in 1945 in Cape Town. His journey had begun and never flagged until his death in 1986. Artist Beth Bailey whom he married in 1951 accompanied him on that painterly journey. Du Toit is best remembered for his very expressionist, colorful landscapes, often painted en plein air. His canvases were a fresh departure from the more restrained, formalistic paintings seen in South African at the time.
