This biography follows on the boxed double-volume collectors' edition on Alexis Preller (Africa : The sun and shadows and Collected images), written by Esmé Berman and Karel Nel, and published by Shelf Publishers in 2009. It accompanied the Preller retrospective held at the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg and the Iziko South African National Gallery in 2009 and 2010. In the process of doing the research and reconstructing Preller's life, Berman's biography of the artist grew and it was decided that it could stand alone - in a less expensive, popular version that would be accessible and appeal to art lovers and the general reader alike.
