Irma Stern Museum

The Irma Stern Museum in Rosebank - close to the University of Cape Town - is one of Cape Town's hidden gems. The museum and art gallery is actually the house where Irma Stern, one of South Africa's great artists, lived and worked. Curated by the University of Cape Town and the Trustees of the Irma Stern Estate, it contains a wealth of information and works of the famous artist, and also has regular temporary exhibitions which are always most interesting. It also has an unexpected, lovely garden to sit and relax and contemplate art in.
This is my interesting "i" for ABC Wednesday.

    Great museum indeed. Love Irma Stern's work. Thank you very much.

  3. Sounds the perfect place, so interesting to investigate an artists work when it is all gathered together.

  4. Each and every city and town has hidden museums and galleries like this that often the locals don't even know about. And often you find that the people promoting them most are bloggers like you and me.
