Charles Gassner (1915-1977) Born in The Netherlands was a painter of both abstract and figurative subjects. He studied fine art in The Hague before moving to Berlin. Inclined to lead an itinerant lifestyle Gassner left Europe in 1948 bound for South Africa where he settled and was to become one of a group of talented artists working in the very distinctive South African school of representational abstraction, which later became termed as the ‘Isolation Years’ and is regarded as one of the most important movements in South African art history.
