NOTABLE LOTS: Contemporary South African art has certainly stepped up to the plate in 2010. Million rand figures are no longer reserved exclusively for South African masters like Irma Stern and JH Pierneef. This year saw us set a world records for Edoardo Villa’s Mapogga Man (R1 232 000) and William Kentridge’s DRAWING FOR THE FILM STEREOSCOPE  which sold for a breathtaking R2 240 000- world record for the artist and most certainly the highest price paid for a contemporary artist on South African soil. South African master’s still dominate auctions and 2010 saw previously overlooked. South African masters making headlines: the New Group’s Freida Lock and Maud Sumner have risen amongst the ranks of those being chased at auction. Freida Lock’s Hout Bay Valley went for a staggering R1 680 000 in June this year.
