There are so many works I wish to write of … but I must refer to two small landscapes by Moses Tladi… They are something of a portent. In a naïve technique all his own, Tladi tells the stark truth in a poetic way. The atmosphere of the Witswatersrand is in those pictures unmistakable to all that know the Transvaal.

- Bernard Lewis


Iziko South African National Gallery, Cape Town, Moses Tladi Unearthed, September 2015.
