South Africa’s Transformation Told through Art

The Sanlam Art Collection came into being on 9 March 1965 when the Sanlam Board approved the acquisition of 12 paintings by well-known artists for the production of a prestige calendar in the coming year.

The collection has grown considerably since and has proved to be a good investment, with the current valuation of the collection exceeding twenty times what it has cost to acquire. The collection can be viewed in the Sanlam Art Gallery, in Bellville, the Sanlam Art Lounge in Sandton, Johannesburg and in a Sanlam offices in Bellville, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Stellenbosch. Selections from the collection are occasionally showcased in themed exhibitions which tour various centers in South Africa. Sanlam continues to acquire significant images by established and emerging artists in South Africa and with this Centennial exhibition reaffirms its commitment to supporting the visual arts for generations to come.
