While Pemba is a well-known artist in South Africa, he has only recently begun to get wider international exposure.

George Pemba struggled to get formal training, and to earn a living from his art.  With the introduction of apartheid policies in 1948, he found it even more difficult to pursue his art.  He decided not to leave the country but to carry on painting the living conditions and cultures of the African people.

This book tells the story of his life and shows many aspects of his work as it developed over time, through color reproductions, and black and white photographs.  This beautifully produced book with full-color illustrations will be a delight to learners and teachers alike.  Includes a wordlist.
