The Johannesburg Station Panels

Artist JH Pierneef’s most acclaimed public commission was completed between 1929 and 1932 The Johannesburg Station Panels have been characterised as the epitome of the South African landscape genre. Since 2002 the complete set of thirty two panels - twenty eight landscape and four tree scenes, is on long term loan from the TRANSNET Foundation to the Rupert Art Foundation and have also been exhibited in the Jan Rupert Centre in Graaff-Reinet.

STOREROOM SERIES

These are a few of my favourite things! Since the opening of the museum in 2005 visitors were overwhelmed and taken by surprise by a single gallery space filled with an extensive selection of artworks by five prominent South African artists – Irma Stern, Maggie Laubser, Cecil Higgs, Jean Welz and Anton van Wouw. Mrs Huberte Rupert felt a deep connection with this collective group of artists. It left a lasting impression on returning visitors, with many choosing either a favourite artist or work before they left, and an urge to revisit these time and time again.
