in Cape Town and Johannesburg

Two senior Bonhams specialists, Director of Prints & Multiples, Lucia Tro Santafe, and Head of Impressionist & Modern Art, London, Hannah Foster will be offering free fine art valuations in Cape Town and Johannesburg during April.

Lucia and Hannah will be in Johannesburg on Monday April 8 and Tuesday 9 and in Cape Town on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 April. Appointments with Lucia and Hannah can be made by contacting Penny Culverwell on [email protected] or calling her on 071 342 2670.

On previous visits to South Africa, Lucia and Hannah have found works that have then sold successfully at Bonhams London. These include:

- Andy Warhol's screenprint Mick Jagger sold for £35,000 in London in December 2018.

- Landschaft mit Pferden a work on paper by the German artist Otto Dix sold for £90,000 in London in March 2018.

Lucia Tro Santafe said: "The market for prints, especially 20th century and contemporary work, has been steadily growing, and this is now a good time for anyone who is considering selling to seek a valuation. I am hoping to find some hidden gems during my trip to South Africa."

Hannah Foster added: "Bonhams Impressionist and Modern Art department has just enjoyed its most successful year ever with very high selling rates and a new world record of £7 million for a work by the Japanese artist Foujita. The appetite for quality work has rarely been higher, and I am looking forward to seeing great pieces at our valuations."
