What I Buy and Why: South African Collector Pulane Kingston on the One Work She’s Still Trying to Convince an Artist to Sell Her

I try to exclusively buy art from galleries and art fairs.

I actually have two Kentridges, one above each sofa. The Gerard Sekoto is in the bathroom.

What work do you wish you had bought when you had the chance?

When I traveled to Art Basel for the very first time, in 2016, I was completely green and overwhelmed by the number of people at the fair. I saw the most exceptional painting by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye at Jack Shainman Gallery, but I didn’t know to buy it immediately. When I went back the next day, it was gone.

If you could steal one work of art without getting caught, what would it be?

Kerry James Marshall’s . I look at this painting at least once a week. His paintings are exceptionally executed, but it’s also the fact that he is one of the first Black artists who so completely described the importance of inserting Black art into the canon of art history. If I could fill my home with anyone’s art, it would be his.
