Irma Stern and JH Pierneef produced the top prices at Strauss & Co’s spring auction in Cape Town on Monday that grossed sales of R55million.

A peak-period Stern painting of Watussi Woman with Mountains in a Rwandan landscape was the top lot, selling for R10.25m. Pierneef’s Gold & Green, Rooiplaat, NT, a neo-impressionist rarity for the artist, surprisingly fetched R2.7m, four times more than its pre-sale estimate.

Pierneef’s more characteristic study of interlaced camelthorn trees in a landscape near Thabazimbi also fetched R2.7m.

Irma Stern’s painting ‘Watussi Woman with Mountains’ sold for R10.25m.
