GUIDED TOUR: THE KING’S MAP

Join the Friends of the South African museum and curator, Professor Ian Glenn for a walkabout of the exhibition:

The King’s Map, Francois La Vaillant in southern Africa: 1781 -1784

Le Vaillant created a window on southern Africa through his writings, watercolours and maps that vividly depict both nature and human interaction at that time. Notably, Le Vaillant was a free thinking all-rounder, whose keen interest in the world included not only nature and art, but the social conditions experienced by the local people he engaged with.

Discover the journey and multidimensional legacy of this 18th century explorer, naturalist and social critic.
