Rupert Museum

Life and Leisure recommends the Rupert Museum which showcases the unique private art collection of Anton and Huberte Rupert. The museum setting is sublime – nestled in picturesque vineyards with oak trees lining the banks of the Eersterivier (First River). Commissioned by Huberte Rupert in 2003, the museum complements the architectural history, natural beauty and wine culture of the Stellenbosch area. Opened in February 2005, the Rupert Museum houses over 350 artworks, and can be regarded as the premier collection of contemporary South African art for the periods 1940 to 1970. The predominant mediums displayed are paintings, sculptures and tapestries. This private art collection reveals the fine artistic eye and discerning personal taste of Anton and Huberte Rupert. Today, the collection continues to grow under the careful guardianship of the Rupert Art Foundation. The spectacular Pierneef Collection here and at La Motte is the most comprehensive collection and a must see for Pierneef and art lovers alike. Rupert Museum is 1.9 km from Life and Leisure’s doorstep.
