“This thoroughly researched historic document honours Maggie Laubser [as one of the few true South African Expressionists]. … Muller Ballot reviews the European art movements at the beginning of the 20th century. He pays special attention to German Expressionism, especially the art of Die Brücke putting in perspective the background from which Laubser’s art evolved. [In this book] we have guidance par excellence.” (Elza Miles, 2016).

Muller Ballot studied Art History at the University of Pretoria and the Rijksuniversiteit in Ghent, Belgium where he focused on Flemish Expressionism. In 1991 Professor Ballot was instrumental in the founding of the University Museum and the Sasol Art Museum in Stellenbosch.
