Editor's note: Art and Artists is the most comprehensive reference work on South African art yet published. In addition to more than 400 biographies on individual artists - 210 of them in depth - there are over 100 articles on museums and institutions, art groups and associations, styles and media, exhibitions and events. The book explores the developments in South African art and recalls the early activity in each of the main centres. It examines various classes of painting, graphic and sculptural expression and lists the leading exponents in those fields. It gives attention also to a wide range of related topics such as Art Periodicals, Collections, Fame and Promise, Forgeries, National Competitions, Reproductions, Rock Art, etc.
