Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.
This week Whitfield interviewed William Kentridge, well-known and adored around the world for his prints, drawings and animated films.
Many of Kentridge's artworks are among the all-time most expensive works by a South African.
A charcoal drawing by Kentridge can, according to one art dealer, set you back R4.7 million (£250 000).
In 2011 one of his works sold for R8.6 million ($600 000).
“Ubu and The Truth Commission”, directed by Kentridge, is currently on at The Market Theatre.
