The paintings Irma Stern lived there. She was friends with Max Pechstein and had her first major exhibition in Berlin. Changing exhibitions are shown on the first floor.
I loved visiting The Irma Stern Museum recently. As i entered her home, which is now the museum, I could feel her presence everywhere. I almost epected her to pop her head around the corner as I meandered from room to room. Painting women and African people in her unique expressive style is what's she's best known for and I wasn't even aware she had painted landscapes. The garden is an absolute delight with views over the peninsula in the front and Table Mountain in the back. It's evident by her unusual style of gardening that she was fond of colour and form. It's well worth a visit but do call in advance in case something else is booked.
Enjoyed the exhibition of textile art on display. Most favorite the work by Eastern cape artists from Keiskamma projects
