Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The art of black South Africans was not only suppressed for many years but nearly lost. Gerard Sekoto (1913^-93) was a gifted painter with a flair for color and pattern and for capturing the vitality of the human figure. His vibrant paintings of life in the many South African towns and cities he called home during the 1930s and 1940s preserve and interpret a vanished world. Sekoto himself vanished from the scene when he chose self-exile in Paris in 1947. There's great irony in this decision. His journey was made possible by his considerable success, but his separation from his home and the subject matter dearest to his heart adversely affected his work. Lindop was able, by dint of strong effort, to locate many of Sekoto's South African paintings, rescuing them from obscurity and making them available to viewers the world over. She also contacted Sekoto late in his life and conducted a sustained correspondence with him, thus preserving his thoughts about his life and powerful work. Donna Seaman
