'Portrait of Ursula' by South African painter Irma Stern South Africa Jewish Museum

A stunning image from one of Irma Stern's trips to Zanzibar which inspired some of her best work, titled Pink Sari, signed and dated 1947, and with its original Zanzibar frame, sold at Bonhams for £959,650. Never before seen on the open market, the painting was acquired directly from the artist circa 1961 and then passed by direct descent to the current owner. It was the top lot in Bonhams sale of South African Art which has consistently broken records for South African art.
