The legendary painting will (hopefully) be hammered off by Bonhams auctioneers in London on Wednesday, 2 October.
Amanda Botha, a Cape Town journalist, was friends with Tretchikoff in the 1960s and 1970s. She asked him once if the message of Journey's End was sad. He said: 'Of course, not! It’s wonderful. If things were to last forever, there will be no room for anything new and beautiful'.
