LIONEL ABRAHMS (1931 – 1997) – Lionel is one of the artists whose works have previously been available from us. He is one of the lesser-known South African artists, mainly because he was somewhat reluctant to hold exhibitions of his artwork.

Initially he studied to become an architect, but suspended his studies after the second year to focus on his art to the dismay of his mother, Ella Abrahms, who immigrated to South Africa from Lithuania during the 2nd World War.
