SA artist Cecily Sash has died aged 94 in the UK, where she had been living and working since the 1970s.

In her seminal book Painting in South Africa, art historian Esmé Berman notes that during the 1960s few SA artists exercised more influence than Sash. While her influence might have dipped in the intervening years, there has been a renewed interest in her work in recent years.
