Moses Kottler was a South African painter and sculptor. He is widely regarded, along with Anton van Wouw and Lippy Lipshitz, as one of the most important South African sculptors. This triumvirate had the distinction of also having excelled at using pictorial media; Lipshitz with monotypes and Van Wouw in painting and drawing. Kottler's work in oils earned him additional consideration as a painter. He was responsible for large figures representing Literature, Sculpture, Architecture, Medicine, Music, History, Philosophy and Painting on the facade of the Public Library in Johannesburg.
