Cape Town National Gallery – Flickr pic of the day
Tiffany says, “We spent a great hour in the Company Gardens this week – I had forgotten how beautiful it is and how much there is to do there.”
She continues, “My sister and I snuck in unpaid in desperate need of a pee, promising the lady at the admission desk that we would close our eyes and not look at any of the art. We got about two steps before we were stopped in our tracks &ndash my sister by the William Kentridge video and me by a big sign painted on the wall entitled ‘Innocent Erotica’.”
“The South African National Gallery is full of incredible art and really is an understated attraction. There are some great golden oldies (including the odd Pierneef here and there) as well as some of the more well-known contemporary artists (a great Brett Murray wall sculpture right at the entrance).”
“Don’t be fooled if it is something you went to years ago and feel like you have been there, done that; it’s a really great attraction!”
