Irma Stern (1894-1966) was a major South African artist who achieved national and international recognition in her lifetime. The Irma Stern Museum is governed by the University of Cape Town and the Trustees of the Irma Stern Estate.
The permanent collection on display shows Irma Stern's development as an artist whose subject matter included exotic figures, portraits, lush landscapes and still lifes conveyed in a variety of media, ranging from oils and water colours to gouache and charcoal.
The Irma Stern Museum was established in 1971 and is the house the artist lived in for almost four decades. Several of the rooms are furnished as she arranged them while upstairs there is a commercial gallery used by contemporary South African artists. A lively temporary exhibition programme is arranged annually and visitors can enjoy the garden.
