  • Profile

    Important collection of South African and international art. The Hyman Liberman Memorial Doors, carved by Herbert Vladimir Meyerowitz, honour Mayor Liberman, who championed the establishment of the gallery and was a generous philanthropist. The doors represent ‘Hebrew Migration from Many Lands’, ‘Arrival in the Land of Peace and Prosperity’ and ‘Rebecca at the Well’. The bas-relief sculpture over the main entrance to the Gallery was carved by his wife Eva Meyerowitz, the famed scholar of West African art. The bas relief panels above the doors to each room were also carved by Meyerowitz. The Alfred de Pass collection of English and French paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints donated between 1926 and 1949, and a room named after him, commemorate this benefactor. Iziko SANG also houses the collection of Italian drawings donated by Lady Michaelis in 1930.
