Mr Deon Herselman, Director of the Rupert Museum (which forms part of the Rupert Foundation) talks about the late Mrs Huberte Rupert’s initiative to build the museum. The building was opened 10 years ago and houses an extensive collection of classical South African artists, such as Irma Stern and Jacob Pierneef, as well as contemporary artists like William Kentridge.
This interview coincides with the museum’s current exhibition of the European sculptors, Antoine Bourdelle and Kathe Kollwitz, whose work was acquired by Anton and Huberte Rupert during their many trips to Europe and forms part of their extensive collection.
Dr Anton Rupert was an internationally respected industrialist who established a global business empire, continued by their son, Johann. In 1988, they created Richemont which has become a giant in the world of luxury goods.
