Ephraim Mojalefa Ngatane (South African, 1938-1971)
Boxers signed and dated 'E. Ngatane 69' (lower left) oil on composite board 75 x 60cm (29 1/2 x 23 5/8in).
Known for his animated paintings of township life, Ephraim Ngatane was also an accomplished boxer. The current lot reflects this passion: the two boxers are centrally positioned, and their movement frames a clutch of attentive spectators.
