“Cookie, Annie Mavata” hangs in the Pretoria Art Museum, never to come onto the market again. In “Three Mirrors”, which she executed in 1959 as an already established museum artist, she experimented with contemporary ideals and incorporated “Cookie, Annie Mavata” into the painting of the “Three Mirrors” with her Rococo catalogue.
