South African painting

Bonhams are holding their fourth South African sale in September. It will be the largest sale of its kind and one that is set to break all records associated with South African art. As ever the work is a mixed bag quality-wise, but there is plenty of interest, and a couple of really exceptional paintings. I have selected a handful of pieces below, the catalogue can be browsed in its entirety online at Bonhams website (part 1, part 2.)

Edward Roworth (1880-1964) - "Cape farmhouse"
