About

Nelson Mandela, The Window, 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 creating the The Window print, he told Anna and Laura from Belgravia Gallery of his desire to become a full time artist when he retired. This sketch depicts a view of Table Mountain through the bars of a prison cell on Robben Island. In fact Table Mountain is not visible from the prison cell windows, however, the view depicted in this piece idealises one that resembles freedom and beauty to Nelson Mandela during his incarceration. `The Window’ is one of the few sketches where colour is used throughout indicating the deep emotional value and meaning attached by Nelson Mandela. An edition of 500 lithographs was launched on Robben Island in 2003 and very few remain available.
