Evita Depicted in the Style of the Great Masters

In 1997 Pieter‑Dirk Uys asked me to create a painting of Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout. As Tannie Evita is the most famous white woman in South Africa, I decided to paint her as that other famous woman, Mona Lisa. When Pieter heard this, he exclaimed, “Dit klink fabulous, Skattie!” (‘That sounds fabulous, darling!’) and thus my and Tannie Evita’s flirtation with the great masters of art went into orbit.
