Art – Nelson Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom

London’s Belgravia Gallery has extended the current exhibition which showcases its collection of powerful artwork by Nelson Mandela to commemorate his extraordinary life. The exhibition, Nelson Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom, will be on display at the gallery until 10 February 2014.

The pieces on display at the Mayfair-based gallery were originally launched by Nelson Mandela on Robben Island in 2003 where he spoke of his love of drawing. The exhibition features 16 lithographs which were signed by Mandela when gallery owners Laura Walford and Anna Hunter travelled to meet him at his home in South Africa in 2002.

Also featured in the exhibition are original drawings of Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned, hand written pieces that explain Mandela’s motivation behind particular pieces and a signed and illustrated copy of Mandela’s book, The Long Walk to Freedom. In addition, images of his beloved South Africa and photography from throughout his extraordinary life by celebrated photographer Jurgen Schadeberg are on display.
