MIGRATIONS:
Time - Place - Culture

This eclectic display of British, French and South African art works spans more than three centuries. Each art work has its own story to tell.

Still Life with Omega Flowers (1919), by the English artist Roger Fry, was purchased in London for the Gallery’s collection in 1985. This painting extends the Gallery’s collection of British Post-Impressionist art works. It represents the artistic production of the Bloomsbury Group of English painters and designers. The paper flowers in the painting were produced in the group’s design studio, the Omega Workshops.

This painting travelled back to England for a major Bloomsbury Group exhibition at the Tate Gallery, London, in 1999.
