An exhibition of works by GEORGE FRENCH ANGAS (25 April 1822 – 4 October 1886). He was a British explorer, naturalist and talented artist.

The works exhibited here are based on his travels in Natal and the Cape  in 1846 where he spent two years working on a series of sketches, paintings and water colours. There are depictions of Cape Town, Wineberg, Genadendal, Paarl and Somerset West as well as the traditional life of the Zulu,  Khoi and Malay clothing.  He published them in 1849 and provided valuable  ethnographic  en naturalist descriptions about every art work.

This collection was donated to the Monument by the Department of Tourism in 2017.
