Who are we?

Interestingly, the concept for the Rupert Museum has its origins in a fire. When an electrical-short threatened fire in the ceiling of their Stellenbosch home, Huberte Rupert made the decision to create an art museum. Huberte Rupert’s wish for the modern art museum was to provide an intimate experience of the extensive art collection, and the brief to South African architect Hannes Meiring was for a gallery that was neither ostentatious nor pretentious. She particularly wanted a homely atmosphere with smaller spaces furnished with Cape Dutch and other period furniture, ‘a space in which visitors could move around withoutconfusion.´ In consultation with her architect, she was however persuaded to adopt a larger scale with greater distances between walls to allow the works sufficient breathing space.
