[Source - Debra Pryor for FHYA, 2017, using the Johannesburg Art Gallery Wikipedia page, The Johannesburg Art Gallery is a gallery in Joubert Park in the central business district of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The initial collection was put together by Sir Hugh Lane, and exhibited in London in 1910 before being brought to South Africa. Florence, Lady Phillips, an art collector and wife of mining magnate, Lionel Phillips, established the first gallery collection using funds provided by her husband. Lady Phillips donated her lace collection and arranged for her husband to donate seven oil paintings and a Rodin sculpture to the collection.

The current collection includes works by Auguste Rodin, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Herbert Ward and Henry Moore, and South Africans such as Gerard Sekoto, Walter Battiss, Alexis Preller, Maud Sumner, Sydney Kumalo, Ezrom Legae and Pierneef. It also houses an extensive collection of the work of contemporary local artists.

In the latter part of the twentieth century the gallery began to collect 19th + 20th century objects of material culture from southern Africa.]
