Notes

The present lot was painted in 1946 when Sumner was staying in Cape Town at the house of Professor Robert Harold Compton, Director of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens from 1919 - 1953, and founder of the Compton Herbarium.  The vibrant proteas depicted include pin-cushion and silvertree leaves that the artist often selected on her visits to the Cape.  The Persian kelim is also a favoured recurring feature, see Strauss & Co, Johannesburg, 4 June, 2018, lot 53.
