About the Session

Strauss & Co is pleased to present the Coba Diederiks Collection. An avid supporter of many artists, Coba Diedricks' home in Onrus was a joy to behold, a virtual Aladdin’s cave of artistic delights, including oils by Judith Mason, Jacobus Kloppers and Piet van Heerden, watercolours by Adolph Jentsch and Cecil Higgs, and a mouth-watering collection of sculptures by Caroline van der Merwe, Bridget Randall and Jaco Sieberhagen, who is a personal friend. Her long association with the art world has left its mark and we are indeed privileged to be offering these paintings and sculptures on her behalf.
