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.
