Custodial history

[Source - Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA, 2015: Jonathan Lowen is an ex South African living in London. He sourced items from a wide range of places including antique dealers, markets such as Portabello Road, auction sales, etc. The collection was purchased by wealthy Johannesburg businessman and philanthropist, Harry Oppenheimer, and placed on on-term loan with the Johannesburg Art Gallery (JAG) in 1987. (Info from Karel Nel to Nessa Leibhammer, 12 October 2014) See: also Sandra Klopper, ‘South Africa’s Culture of Collecting: The Unofficial History’, African Arts, Winter 2004, 18-24.]
