    Developing Characters

    R50

    For more than a decade, a Johannesburg garage held a marvellous secret: an archive of over 1,400 photographic negatives produced by Kitty’s Studio in Pietermaritzburg between 1972 and 1984. Poor and working-class patrons ”classified by the apartheid government as African, Indian and coloured” came there to be photographed by Singarum Jeevaruthnam Moodley (1922-1987), a.k.a. Kitty, and members of his family.

  • Firecrackers: Female Photographers Now

  • Frantia’ek Drtikol

    R480

    Czech photographer Frantisek Drtikol (1883-1961) reinvented the genre of nude photography for the early twentieth century. Drtikol opened his Prague studio in 1907, and his nudes from this early period convey the dreamy eroticism of Art Nouveau and the foreboding accents of Prague Symbolism that he was to return to throughout his somewhat brief career (Drtikol abandoned photography for painting in 1935, and it was not until curator Anna Farova’s now legendary 1972 Prague exhibition that this work was rediscovered by a broader public).

  • Gauguin: Maker of Myth

    R300

    French painter, sculptor and printmaker Paul Gauguin was born in Paris in 1848 and died in French Polynesia in 1903. The vivid, unnaturalistic colors and bold outlines of his paintings and the strong, semi-abstract quality of his woodcuts had a profound effect on the development of twentieth-century art.
