The Rupert Museum houses the unique and private art collection started by the Late Dr Anton Rupert and his wife Huberte Rupert in the 1940s. A South African businessman, philanthropist and conservationist, Anton Rupert, together with his wife, Huberte, were prominent figures in support of the visual arts, as well as promoting education, music and the preservation of historical buildings.
The inspiration for the museum has its origin in a fire at the Ruperts’ home, following which, Huberte Rupert made the decision to create an art museum which would provide an intimate experience of their extensive art collection. It certainly reflects the discerning eye and personal taste of Dr and Mrs Rupert, exhibiting a selection of what is considered a foremost collection of Modern South African art.
