Among those represented here are Mary Renault, British-born author of historical fiction; play director Roy Sargeant; and artist Angus Taylor, many of whose works can be seen in the “Collectible material objects” section. All of these individuals have drawn upon Greco-Roman antiquity in their art, intertwining South Africa with the ancient past.
