Hans Fransen investigates whether, and to what extent, the decorative gables, the ornate entrances and cornices and the armoires of Cape material culture can be seen as part of the international Baroque.

Hans Fransen is also the author of "Three Centuries of South African Art", "The Old Buildings of the Cape", "Old Towns and Villages of the Cape" and "A Cape Camera".
