While specializing in international fine prints, the gallery's has access to a works which also includes painting, sculpture, ceramics, and illustrated artist's books by modern and contemporary masters.

Being based in the heart of South Africa we have access to a wide range of both established and up and coming young African artists, which amongst other works include pottery and bead works.

In addition to holding an inventory of owned pieces, we work with both international and local dealers to SOURCE important prints, sculpture, impressionist, post-impressionist and 20th century works.

“French Impressionism started a great cycle of change, throwing off the strictures and limitations of hundreds, indeed thousands, of years of the Western cannon. This change continued with Post Impressionism, Cubism, Fauvism, and German Expressionism, to name but a few nineteenth and early twentieth century movements. The culmination and refinement of many of these exciting and challenging directions were delineated in modern art, which produced a new renaissance. Picasso, Miro, Marini, Matisse, Moore, Kandinsky, Pollock, Rothko and a host of artists have distilled the essence of the centuries of art that preceded ours and restated the precepts of the classical in previously unimaginable ways, thereby deconstructing artificial barriers that would disconnect the past from the present, while challenging future generations to do the same.”
