Footnotes

  • Irma Stern often visited the Malay quarter in Cape Town, depicted here below the imposing outline of Signal Hill. Harnessing the fluidity of gouache, Stern emphasises the flow of colourful cloth and evokes the sensuality with which she associated Malay and Arab people. Stern soaked up the rich cultural life of the Malay quarter, inspiring many images of collective experience, particularly compositions of vibrantly-adorned women at wedding ceremonies.
