About this Item

South African 1945-1988
Stalking Leopard
a unique work
bronze with a verdigris patina
height: 39,5cm


The current owner acquired the sculpture by his late mother, Mrs Frances Winckworth, who ran The Downstairs Gallery from her private residence in Benoni in the 1970s. During this period, Winckworth held many exhibitions by aspiring artists, one such artist being Stanley Nkosi who, at the time, was studying under Cecil Skotnes. Mrs Winckworth felt that Nkosi showed outstanding skill and agreed to finance the cost of having two bronze sculptures cast. Stalking Leopard  is one of these works cast, a unique work, and was pruchased by Winckworth and added to her private collection.
