[Source - Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA, 2016, using JAG materials: Jonathan Lowen is a judge, originally from South Africa, now living in London. He sourced items from a wide range of places including antique dealers, markets such as Portobello Road, auction sales, etc. Because the Johannesburg Art Gallery was unable to raise the money to buy Lowen’s collection, it was purchased by wealthy businessman and philanthropist Harry Oppenheimer and placed on long-term loan at JAG. Subsequent to the Brenthurst Collection being sold to the Oppenheimer family Lowen has continued to assemble collections of southern African material. A large part of the Maritz collection was bought by Maritz from Lowen.]
