Iziko National Gallery review Rate it

The permanent collection dedicates space to British, Dutch, Flemish and South African art spanning the centuries, interspersed with traditional African beadwork and contemporary South African works such as Jane Alexander's hauntingly realistic trio of beasts, The Butcher Boys. The temporary exhibitions are the biggest draw, however, featuring both young and established local artists, alongside occasional retrospectives of the likes of Picasso and Marlene Dumas. Recent temporary exhibitions have included work by the 'alternative modernist' Pancho Guedes and an extensive collection of Cecil Skotnes's work.
