From the publisher:
 
“The thrust behind this exhibition and catalogue is to assess Louis Maqhubela’s contribution to the history of South African art and to remind South Africans – many of whom have never heard of him, and others who have forgotten him – of a great artist who had success early in his career (in spite of the hostile environment created by the apartheid government), whose work changed dramatically after he travelled abroad, and who continues to live and work in London...The name Louis Maqhubela is particularly significant in the history and development of urban black art in this country. In brief, the intention of this monograph and the exhibition it accompanies is to return Maqhubela from obscurity and to re-inscribe him into the history of art in South Africa.”
 
Published on the occasion of the 2010 exhibition at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg, this catalogue includes written contributions from David Koloane and John McLean with many full-colour illustrations of the artist and his work.
 
This second-hand copy of A Vigil of Departure – Louis Khehla Maqhubela: A Retrospective 1960-2010 is in near-perfect condition.
