Jan Beekman Painting Nelson Mandela's Portrait

American, Belgian artist Jan Beekman has created a remarkable portrait of former South African president and Nobel Prize laureate Nelson (Rolihhahla) Mandela, capturing the significant moment of his release from prison in 1990. This profound work of art, which took Beekman three years to complete, is set to join the prestigious art collection of the United Nations in New York City.

Jan Beekman, who has been residing and working in the USA for over 35 years, has had his artistic contributions recognized and celebrated internationally. The Beekman Foundation, in collaboration with the Belgian government, has generously decided to donate this significant painting, ensuring that Mandela’s legacy and Beekman’s artistic mastery will be appreciated by a global audience.
