INVICTUS ARTWORK  

Early in 2009 a film agency walked into the Cape Gallery in Cape Town and hired three of Rossouw’s oil paintings. These South African landscapes featured as props in Clint Eastwood’s movie ‘’Invictus’’.

When director Clint Eastwood arrived on the set and saw the paintings, he was so impressed that he decided to buy two of the paintings for his personal collection.
