Irma Stern Museum is the former home of one of South Africa's most famous 20th-century painters. Irma Stern (1894-1966) became a cultural and artistic icon not only for her fusion of European-inspired expressionist artwork and African subjects, but also for her vast collection of African and ancient artifacts. Her unique portraits and colorful landscapes comprise the museum's excellent permanent collection and are accompanied by a contemporary display of South African artists. After touring the museum, explore the garden.
