As you may already know, The White House Gallery specialises in 20th century art – both local and international; spanning editions, drawings, paintings and sculptures. Our featured global artists include Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Henry Moore, Henri Matisse, Jim Dine, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, while artists of local heritage include Deborah Bell, William Kentridge, Norman Catherine, Robert Hodgins, Walter Battiss, Sam Nhlengethwa, and others.
At The White House Gallery we encourage collectors to buy artworks that they appreciate for aesthetic reasons. However, in the current art market, we also believe that carefully acquired ‘blue-chip’ art can serve as a safe haven for collectors’ capital. It is beneficial to be aware, in this regard, that the key aspect of a ‘blue-chip’ artwork or artist is not the opinion of the collector, a critic, or a fellow artist, but rather the demand for and resale value of the blue-chip piece in question.
