For the love of art, food and wine…

Home to an impressive collection of contemporary local art, the Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch is widely regarded as the premier authority for the periods 1940 to 2000. In addition to local art, the museum also manages the Rembrandt van Rijn collection and the Huberte Goote collection, featuring Modern French tapestries and Italian paintings and sculpture. 

Among the 350-strong featured artworks are pieces by internationally acclaimed South African artists such as Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef, Irma Stern and Maggie Laubser.

A collaboration between the Irma Stern Trust and Museum, “Irma Stern’s Dining Room” forms part of the current Nature Morte – The Still From Life exhibition. Guests will be given a rare peek into the objects and spaces that played a role in her life. On show are personal memorabilia, artefacts collected during her illustrious travels, and artworks from her estate. The installation is a celebration of Irma Stern, the artist, collector, traveller and entertainer, and uncovers a lesser-known side of her work in various religious-themed paintings.

Eat, drink and be arty

Guests will be treated to a unique multi-media culinary experience created by food artist Caro Jesse to celebrate the artist’s extraordinary life. As you dine in Stern’s dining room surrounded by pieces of her personal history, you’ll have a sense of the countries she visited, scenes and people she encountered and the stories of her life – all of which will be depicted in the various ingredients on your plate. A visual performance by Caro – and exemplary estate wine – will accompany your three-course meal.
