A visit to the Rupert Museum is a must for any art lover. An amazing collection by South African artists is on view in a modern spacious building in a glorious setting in Stellenbosch. The Pierneef exhibition was fascinating and well worth seeing.

Well worth the visit for a very small fee. All is great but loved the large Pierneef paintings. It was relaxed and cool during a hot summers day.

I came back to study the highly designed Pierneff paintings again. The construct of all of his paintings is very impressive as well as the mostly cool pallet. I am drawn to the Irma Stern paintings also because of the raw but powerful figures and...More
