Nelson MandelaFrom The Art Server in Belgium:

Belgian artist Jan Beekman has painted a portrait of ex president of South Africa and Nobel prize winner Nelson (Rolihhahla) Mandela (°1918), at the time of his release from prison in 1990.

The work of art, at which Beekman worked for 3 years, will become part of the art collection of the United Nations in New York City.

Jan Beekman (°1929) has been living and working in the USA for twenty years.

The Beekman Stichting, which administers the artist’s works, jointly with the Belgian government, decided to donate this painting.
