From the publisher:
"''Take your road and travel along' is a quote from a poem by Gerard Sekoto, and it aptly describes the difficult and lonely journey that the pioneers experienced both in trying to study art in their home countries and in leaving Africa to study in Europe. The assimilation of the European painting tradition into an African idiom resulted in a rich genre of work that is rarely researched and exhibited, even though it challenges and undermines many of the prevailing assumptions about modernism, modernity and the conception of the modern artist."
This catalogue accompanied the exhibition of the same name at the 2008 Johannesburg Art Fair.
