Gerard Sekoto was one of the first black modern artists in South Africa.  It is only now that his work is becoming more widely known.

In this book, Sekoto tells the story of his life from herding cattle in the Transvaal to living in self-exile in France.  He tells how he became interested in art as a young boy and explains how his work progressed and developed.

The art historian Barbara Lindop introduces his works to the reader.  This beautiful book has been written in an easy to read style for new readers as well as for those with little knowledge of art.  The text is clear with good size print and about 200 words to the page and is illustrated with Sekoto’s paintings in color and sketches and photos in black and white.  Suggestions about how to use the book and a glossary and word list are included.

A beautiful book about a wonderful artist.
