Wim Blom taught at the University of the Witwatersrand and at the Johannesburg

School of Art. Trained as an art historian he held the post of Research Curator at the

National Gallery of Canada and subsequently that of Curatorial Administrator. After

leaving the museum world Wim Blom dedicated himself exclusively to painting and for a

number of years, he lived in Italy and Spain.

Wim was a devoted traveller and an inveterate reader in several languages.

His work is represented in public collections, such as the National Gallery of Canada, the

South African National Gallery, The Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ireland and in numerous

corporate and private collections in Canada, France, Great Britain, Germany, Israel, Italy,

Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, and the

Wim Bloms timeless paintings and drawings resonate with people, so much so that

when they purchase one, they tend to want to keep it; they enjoy having it around and

never tire of its image. Very few of his pieces come up for auction.

In 1957 Wim was awarded the Dante Alighieri gold medal by the Fine Arts Society of Florence
