Plans Announced For NYC Art Auction Of Work By Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

Date: Friday, March 5

Start Time: 10AM

Address: Bonhams New York, 580 Madison Avenue, 10022

 

Details:

The Africa Now: African Modern and Contemporary Art auction, taking place on Wednesday March 10th at Bonhams New York is the first commercial auction in the United States showcasing African contemporary art.

 

Alicia Keys - singer, songwriter, actress, author and philanthropist with a keen interest in Africa - has agreed that her charity ‘Keep a Child Alive’ will partner with Bonhams to host the March 9th VIP reception for the ‘Africa Now’ exhibition.

 

Highlighting the 140-lot sale is work by Nelson Mandela himself. Created between March and June 2002 during the period of his incarceration, the set of six hand-printed colored lithographs show his cell room window.  Titled The Robben Island series, the lot carries an estimate of $32,000-48,000.


Images inspired by Mandela also feature widely in the sale, including a brooding head study of Nelson Mandela in pencil (estimate: $7,000-10,000) by Dumile Feni-Mhlaba (South African, 1942-1991).

 

Featuring works by both new and established artists from 14 African nations, other lots of note are pieces from renowned Nigerian artist Ben (Benedict Chukwukadibia) Enwonwu, Senegalese artist Viye Diba, artist Malick Sidibé from Mali, Nigerian artist El Anatusi, and Ghanaian artist Dr. Ablade Glover.
