LONG WALK TO FREE­DOM

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge | Auctions -

may 22 In 2004, Nel­son Man­dela painted six sep­a­rate im­ages of his hands and arms break­ing free from man­a­cles to cel­e­brate lib­erty af­ter 27 years in prison. The im­ages, ti­tled Free­dom, were re­pro­duced as lith­o­graphs in a lim­ited edi­tion of 30 sets, and 30 lead­ing South African and in­ter­na­tional artists were in­vited to add their orig­i­nal work to the prints. The six painted by highly rated Sin­ga­porean artist Tan Swie Hian are be­ing sold as a set at Bon­hams’ Prints, Pho­to­graphs and Works on Pa­per sale (es­ti­mate: HK$700,000–1.1 mil­lion). bon­hams.com
