FOCAL POINT : Nelson Mandela, "Homeland"

THIS YEAR marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela. In commemorating the event, his family has partnered with WeTransfer to reveal previously-unseen illustrations by Mr. Mandela. They are sketches done after he retired from the presidency in 1999 as a way of making sense of his historic life.

View the exclusive online exhibition of Mr. Mandela's elegiac “Homeland” series (2002-2003).

"Without art which captures our culture, we don’t have history."
- Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
