MARILYN MARTIN RECEIVES AWARD (article first published : 2002-03-17)

A few weeks ago Marilyn Martin, Director of Art Collections for Iziko Museums of Cape Town, received the decoration “Officer of the Legion of Honour” of the Republic of France. The ceremony was conducted by the Ambassador of France, His Excellency Mr Jean Cadet, at the Alliance Française in Cape Town. This decoration was instituted by Napoleon in 1802 and is awarded to individuals who have served France during war and peace.

Ms Martin was commended for the cultural links and exchange that she has established between South Africa and France, as well as with francophone Africa through exhibitions, projects and publications. Her service to the Alliance Française also contributed to her receiving the decoration.

She said that this honour acknowledged and affirmed a love for the French language and French culture that she has nurtured and in expressed in her life and work for many decades. As Director of Art Collections for Iziko Museums of Cape Town, she intends building on what has been achieved so far.
