Commenting on the painting Mr Graff said: “As a young man, I noticed the image of Tretchikoff’s Chinese Girl continuously displayed in many different locations in print form. “It was the first piece of art that made an impact on me, and I believe ignited my interest and passion for art. You can imagine my surprise to have learned of the sale of the original painting and of course, my decision to buy it was immediate.”
He continued: “I can confirm that from 30th November 2013, Chinese Girl will be placed on public display at the Estate. I’m certain it will attract a lot of attention and my team and I look forward to welcoming all those who visit us to experience this beautiful piece firsthand.”
The Estate is now considered to be one of South Africa’s leading luxury destinations, winning accolades for its wine, food, design and accommodation.
