Rupert Museum
The Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch

The Rupert Museum showcases the unique private art collection of Anton and Huberte Rupert. Located in the historical town of Stellenbosch, the art museum is set amongst picturesque vineyards and oak trees on the banks of the Eersterivier. The elegant building, which was commissioned by Huberte Rupert in 2003, complements the architectural history, natural beauty and wine culture of the Stellenbosch area.

Officially opened in February 2005, the Rupert Museum now houses over 350 works, and can be regarded as the premier collection of contemporary South African art from the period 1940 to 1970. The predominant mediums displayed are paintings, sculptures and tapestries. The gallery showcases the best of South African artists such as, Maggie Laubser, Irma Stern, Alexis Preller, Walter Battiss, Elza Dziomba, Jean Welz, JH Pierneef, Lippy Lipshitz, Moses Kotler, Anton van Wouw and Coert Steynberg. In addition, there are also major European works by leading sculptors such as Auguste Rodin and Käthe Kollwitz, as well as French tapestries by Jean Lurçat.

The private art collection, begun in the early 1940s, 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.
