When the South African artist Albert Adams died in London in 2006 he left behind a body of masterly works, most of which had never been seen outside of a small circle of friends and colleagues. Born in 1929 of mixed race he had grown up in Cape Town and the pain and alienation must have stayed with him all his life. Joe Dolby, Curator of Prints and Drawings at the South African National Gallery has written that: His was a vision and identity forged in the crucible of apartheid but whose range was universal and timeless and which found its full expression in his graphic art.
