Judith Mason was born in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1938. Mason is a technically disciplined artist working in traditional medium: oil, pencil,
print-making and mixed-media.

She has taught art at Scoula Lorenzo de Medici in Florence Italy, Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town, at the University of the Witwatersrand and privately. Her work is represented in South African national art collections and museums and internationally in private and public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Yale University; The Bodleian Library, at the University of Oxford; and the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Washington DC.

Major public commissions include:

The Man Who Sang, and the Woman Who Kept Silent aka The Blue Dress at The Constitutional Court in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Justice Albie Sachs considers Judith Mason's The Man Who Sang and the Woman Who Kept Silent (1998) to be “one of the great pieces of art in the world of the late 20th century”.

Recently The Paris Review published Judith Mason's Self-Portrait Age 90 and Mason's work The Man Who Sang, and the Woman Who Kept Silent was featured on the cover and as a lead story in Signs Journal published by University of Chicago Press.
