|Chief of Ndebele|
For the third year in a row, Stephan Welz & Co is trying to sell this Tretchikoff painting. The auction is taking place in Johannesburg on 21 April.
This time, the estimate is R600,000-R900,000 (£33,000-50,000).
As far as Tretchikoff's 'exotic' portraits are concerned, this is a bargain. But it's one of those cases when reproductions improve on the original. This painting from the early 1970s is not one of Tretchikoff's better works.
