Scope and Contents:
Paint Containers, 1936-1949. Photographic image of paint containers of various sizes and colors and a shallow bowl. Some have painting tools in them. These containers are used by the Ndebele women to paint their designs on their homesteads. Photograph by Constance Stuart Larrabee, 1936-1949.
Between 1936 and 1949, Constance Stuart devoted much of her spare time to photograph the Ndebele, who lived in settlements near Pretoria. During the week, Stuart operated her studio in town; on weekends she drove to the nearby settlements. She frequently returned to the same places, and became familiar with many Ndebele women. Stuart created portraits, recorded Ndebele architecture, and documented activities, among them wall painting and mat making.
There are no prints of this negative in the Constance Stuart Larrabee Collection. EEPA produced an 8x10 study print for reference purposes.
