In celebration of Sanlam’s 100th year anniversary, the Sanlam Art Collection presents Centennial: A century of Art from the Sanlam Art Collection 1918 - 2018.
What began as the purchase of 12 paintings by local artists in 1965 has grown to a collection of more than 2 000 works, one of the largest corporate collections in South Africa.
Curated by Stefan Hundt, it hosts a range of paintings, sculptures and drawings by some of our country’s most historically important artists such as Irma Stern, Maggie Laubser, Christo Coetzee, Gerard Sekoto, Ezrom Legae, Sydney Kumalo, Pieter Wenning, JH Pierneef and many more.
Art is not only a way to conserve the heritage of South Africa, but is also a means by which they can continue to tell South Africa’s stories, today and for generations to come.
Join in celebrating a century of South African art at the Centennial Art Exhibition.
