Irma Stern Museum and Art Gallery

Irma Stern (1894-1966), was a versatile and highly talented South African Expressionist painter who gave hundreds of exhibitions both locally and abroad during the first half of the 20th century. The Irma Stern Museum, now administered by the University of Cape Town, is located in her home named "The Firs" on Cecil Road in Rosebank.

The subject matter of her paintings varies from portraits and figures to still lifes and landscapes. Her choice of media was also varied, including charcoal, gouache, oils, and water colours.

Exhibitions by Irma Stern were well-received in Europe as early as the 1920's, but it was not until decades later that her work was fully appreciated by conservative critics in South African.

She travelled extensively throughout her life, and especially enjoyed the Congo and the Zanzibar, which gave inspiration to much of her work. While travelling, she collected many artefacts which are still on display in the preserved decor of her home.

Later in life she became interested more in ceramics, creating beautiful vases, jugs, and plates adourned with curious faces.
