Subject: Help with identifying an artwork

Hi there
An artist friend, Sally Arnold, directed me to ArtThrob and said Sue Williamson may be able to help me identify a South African resistance painting. I have tried every avenue so far including the SA National Gallery, the Pretoria Art Museum, the SA Heritage Council with either no reply, or no results. It belongs to South African friends of mine who emigrated to the USA and I would like to be able to help them find out who the artist is, and what the insurance on the painting should be - if it's worth anything.

We can't identify the painting, but should one of our readers be able to help, we'll contact you.

The Feedback section for dialogue and interaction has existed on the ArtThrob site since its inception in 1997. Readers may also submit reviews, though this option is seldom taken up. One of the main aims of ArtThrob is to encourage discourse and the exchange of views on all matters concerning the production and reception of art in South Africa.
