This exhibition comprises a selection of 39 works by 14 prominent South African printmakers who have mastered a large

collection was also exhibited until January 1999 in Louvain,
Turnhout and Hasselt, where it was greeted with much interest.
The exhibition includes works by, for example, Kim Berman
(mezzotints), Lien Botha (selenium toned prints), Michele
dArgent (etchings), Billy Mandindi (etchings), Robert
Siwangaza (linocuts) and Lyn Smuts (colour etchings).
