Irma Stern Protea Gift Box
As reflected in her artworks Grape Pickers (1962) and Vineyard sketch (1966) by Irma Stern, this Protea gift box pays tribute to the hard work, expertise and love needed to produce fine wine.
The use of indigenous themes has been popular amongst many modern South African artists. The acclaimed painter Irma Stern (1894–1966) strongly identified with Expressionism. She is best known for her luscious still lives, native and personal portraits and atmospheric harvesting and landscape scenes, all filled with energetic brushstrokes depicting masterful colour use and combinations.
Stern was a traveling enthusiast and explorer, but always returned home to Cape Town, a city surrounded by the majestic beauty of the winelands where she observed and documented local farm
labourers at work.
As reflected in her artworks Grape Pickers (1962) and Vineyard sketch (1966), this box pays tribute to the hard work, expertise and love needed to produce fine wine.
The artistic legacy of Irma Stern lives on in the collection of the Rupert Art Foundation that may be viewed at rupertmuseum.org/artist/stern-irma
