In the six decades that the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum at St George’s Park has been open, it has accumulated an extensive collection of local artworks. It specialises in local art, craft and design, though it also displays British art, international prints and Oriental art, such as Indian miniatures, Japanese prints and Chinese textiles.
The Africana collection dates back to the 18th century and includes works by Frederick Timpson I’Ons, one of South Africa’s earliest professional artists. You’ll find works by Gladys Mgudlandlu and Dorothy Kay on its walls, as well as dazzling examples of beadwork of the Southern Nguni people.
