LUCAS SITHOLE SCULPTURES (article first published : 2004-04-13)

Fernand F Haenggi from Switzerland writes to ask any owner of sculptures by Lucas Sithole (1931-1994) in KwaZulu-Natal to contact him with details and photographs in jpg format of works they own, so that his organisation can update its Master Registry of Sithole’s works (names of owners are not published!).

The website www.sithole.com shows hundreds of works from various collections around the world, including a Mini Master Registry with 300 images out of 800 recorded works. Lucas Sithole had an exhibition at the old NSA Gallery Durban in 1974 and sold a number of smaller to medium-sized works to collectors in KZN and Fernand Haenggi is anxious to record these.

“By sending us the images and details, owners ensure at no cost easy identification in case of loss or for some future sale – this is a free service to the memory of Lucas SITHOLE,” explains Fernand Haenggi.

Also of interest is www.pelmama.org which is the Pelmama Permanent Art Collection in various museums, the Johannesburg Art Scene from the 60’s to the 90’s and the Pelmama Virtual Book Shop.
