About

Nelson Mandela, Impressions of Africa (black and white), Signed Limited Edition Lithograph Many people are unaware that Nelson Mandela turned his hand to art in his 80's as a way of leaving a legacy for his family. He spent time with an art tutor and learnt to draw. In 2002, when signing the lithographs, he told Anna and Laura from Belgravia Gallery of his desire to become a full time artist when he retired. Throughout history few have left so indelible an imprint on the international stage as Nelson Mandela. His courage, his compassion and his humanity are among the qualities than have led to this Nobel laureate being recognized as the world’s greatest statesman. The Impressions of Africa (black and white) is Mandela's left hand-print surrounded by children who have been affected by HIV and AIDS. It is the pair to the iconic 'Hand of Africa' piece. An edition of 500 lithographs was launched on Robben Island in 2003 and very few remain available. Each piece is hand signed in pencil by Nelson Mandela.
