Abstract: These portraits portray the African National Congress (ANC) President-Generals, including John Dube, Dr Moroka, Chief Albert Luthuli, O.R. Tambo, Josiah Gumede, Pixley Ka- Seme and Nelson Mandela, and painted in 1993. These portraits were commissioned by the Film Resource Unit for the public launch of \"Ulibambe Lingashoni - Hold up the Sun\", a five part video documentary series on the ANC and popular power. The artists are from J V Graphix. From 1912 until then the ANC had inaugurated ten presidents. However, only nine were painted and only eight are found in this collection.
