Description

About the artist:

Irma Stern was a true pioneer of modernist Expressionism in South Africa. Initially derided for her innovative style, she gained widespread recognition after the Empire Exhibition of 1936. She travelled extensively throughout Africa, searching for exotic models to paint.

In the 1950s and 60s she gained international recognition, participating in numerous Venice Biennales and receiving the Guggenheim Award in 1961. Stern’s joyous use of bright, expressive colour is particularly evident in her many still-life paintings.
