Dumile Feni (1942–1991)
Birthday Lady (1977)
Pen and ink on paper, 823 x 721 mm
Donated by Albie Sachs
Feni is known, in part, for his ample erotic drawings, following periods of his intense exploration of anatomy and sexuality. He managed to meld the erotic with the sublime and bestial. True to his style the drawing is categorised by an almost tragic lyrical quality.
