A Repatriated artwork by acclaimed exiled artist Dumile Feni is set to go under the hammer in Johannesburg later this month.

Aspire Art Auctions will auction Feni’s charcoal drawing Children under Apartheid on July 17.

Feni died in New York in 1991.

The work, according to Aspire, was commissioned for a campaign against child abuse in the US in the late 1980s and was exhibited for some years in the UN buildings in New York City.

New York became Feni’s home after he was forced into exile by the former apartheid government for his stand against the regime. read more
