This exhibition is a collaboration between Johannesburg Art Gallery and l’Institut Français d’Afrique du Sud consisting of works from the French collection of JAG. This is a wonderful opportunity to see these rare works displayed in Johannesburg.
Included are 19th Century French artists Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley, as well as sculpture by Auguste Rodin in the form of the beloved Miss Fairfax. This core collection aroused enormous interest in London where it was shown before being shipped to South Africa in 1910. It was regarded as the finest small collection of its day and preceded the Tate and the National Galleries in London displaying French Impressionists.
