Irma Stern Museum
One of South Africa's leading artists, Irma Stern (1894-1966) achieved national and international recognition in her lifetime.
Her home, situated near UCT's Lower Campus in Rosebank, Cape Town, was transformed into the Irma Stern Museum in 1971 and houses a comprehensive collection of the artist's work, as well as her private collection of antique furniture and African art. The permanent collection on display shows Irma Stern's development as an artist. Her 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.
A monthly exhibition programme is arranged annually in the Irma Stern Museum's commercial gallery used by contemporary South African artists. Details are available on the website.
