The larger-that-life Aussie visited the Artique Gallery, in the Royal Arcade, Norwich.
The Gallery was filled with his work that included everything from evocative images of animals in Africa to bold cityscapes of London. About 700 people had registered for tickets for the event and the queue stretched for hundreds of yards.
Ellen Futter, from Norwich, was the first person to meet Rolf and he greeted her with a kiss on the hand and proceeded to sing to her.
Afterwards she said: “He was very, very nice, an absolutely fantastic man, and very much a gentleman.”
It was a long day for Rolf.. goodness knows how he had the energy..He started meeting people around 1pm and didn’t finish until about 6:30pm..I was shattered, let along Rolf, who was so enthusiastic with each and every person!
