Welgemeend Art Month 2017

Abstraction

South African Art from the 50 ‘s to the 70’s

03 – 30 August 2017 WELGEMEEND – CAPE TOWN

The illustrious Cape Town manor home of Welgemeend, an estate founded on the slopes of Table Valley in 1693 and declared a monument in 1944, will once again open its doors for a month-long winter exhibition of important South African art. The exhibition will showcase a selection of works drawn from three important private collections: Welgemeend’s historical collection of earlier 20th-century masterpieces assembled by the much-loved Afrikaans poet and scholar Izak Wilhelmus “Boerneef” van der Merwe, and works from businessman  Frank Kilbourn and his wife Lizelle’s collection as well as works from Pieter Colyn’s private collection. 

Please see the program below for talks, guided walks and viewing times.
