The Sanlam Art Collection came into being in 1965. It now consists of some 2000 items dating from 1874 to 2015 in a diversity of traditional and contemporary media. The guiding principle has always been to build a representative collection of South African art, from the later 19th century to the present. Sanlam continues to acquire significant works by established and emerging artists in South Africa.
Exhibitions drawn from the Sanlam Art Collection and in cooperation with public and private lenders are organised on a regular basis and toured to galleries across South Africa.
Norval Foundation’s Collector’s Focus is a series of exhibitions and talks that highlight the role of collectors of visual art and design in shaping culture. It was established by Elana Brundyn, CEO of Norval Foundation, to recognise the unique contributions that collectors play in the preservation and evolution of culture.
This exhibition, taken from the Sanlam Art Collection, showcases some of the country’s best nude artworks.
On 6 April from 11am to 12pm join Stefan Hundt, Sanlam’s Curator of their Art Collection, on a walkabout through the exhibition. Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
