Erik Laubscher was born in Tulbagh in 1927. He studied at the Continental School of Art in Cape Town and studied portrait art in London. A painter of landscapes, seascapes, still life, figures, portraits and abstract pictures, he worked in oil, acrylic, watercolour, ink, pencil and charcoal. In 1966 he was the first South African to be awarded the Carnegie Scholarship, through which he spent three months on a study tour of the USA. In 1970, he founded the Ruth Prowse Art Centre in Woodstock, Cape Town, which became the Ruth Teachers Association. He has also been a selector for a number of large national and international exhibitions.
