The Fairest Cape
About the Session

The Cape Peninsula has been given many names throughout history. In 1488 Vasco da Gama named it the Cape of Storms and Prince Henry the Navigator gave it the name Cape of Good Hope. But it was the English Admiral, Sir Francis Drake, who gave this south-western most point of Africa the most appropriate name when he declared in 1579, “This Cape is a most stately thing, and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth”.   

These words still ring true today. The November auction has a large body of work devoted to this exceptional part of the world.
