But I like the painting and the stamp was interesting. I removed the dust cover and was surprised at the artist’s name. Does anyone perhaps know this artist? I then realised her surname is part of the stamp. The title is quite elaborate (or is it perhaps a copy of a more well known artwork) I couldn’t find anything on this artist. It’s 80x60cm. Thank you for any help/comments.

    Here she is, exhibiting at the University of Johannesburg in 1989.

    And then there's this. Published in 1987.

    From the Financial Mail "... Roestorf's paintings are fascinating . Superficially , they are childlike ( but by no means naive ) fantasy , and ... artist says she has no desire to make overt political comment ."

    Many thanks Debora. I will look into her work. I was reading and searching: Roestorp

    Im not finding any single pictures of her drawings/paintings just those books (maybe I must try and buy a book) From what I can vaguely see from the book cover it look likes she signed her work (so maybe she started or stopped using a stamp?) But the style also looks so much different? Are you sure it’s the same artist? Thanks

    Agree there isn't much about her floating about. I don't see your work inconsistent with the book cover. But, of course, I could be wrong about attribution.
