Notes

FirstRand, including FNB and RMB, are long-term collaborators and partners with the creative arts across South Africa. Over the years, the different businesses have built significant collections, covering diverse art genres. The FirstRand Art Acquisition Policy has been streamlined and has resulted in the collection requiring de-accessioning of an extensive range of high-quality and desirable botanical, bird and wildlife artworks – all by established twentieth century artists.

All proceeds from these auctions will be re-invested in contemporary South African art.
