Irma Stern

I find this difficult to believe; but, according to Bonhams' blurb, South African Expressionist painter Irma Stern (1894-1966) is one of the top-selling female artists of all time! Bonhams at New Bond Street in London presents The Irma Stern phenomenon. Up for grabs in The South African Sale on 1 October are 11 of Stern's daubs estimated at a total of £2-3 million. This is one of her better ones: Still life with African Woman (1945) in its original Zanzibar frame, estimated at £800,000 - 1.2 million (CLICK).
