Art at Ellerman House

Fine art is the soul of Ellerman House and the collection that line the walls is what sets us apart form other boutique hotels in South Africa. The works span over two centuries, from the works of the famous Thomas Bowler showcasing Cape Town in the 1800s to contemporary works from artists such as Lionel Smith and William Kentridge. We invite our guests to join our art guide, Talita, for a private tour through the Ellerman House art collection starting with the oldest works and ending in the Contemporary Art Gallery, created in 2009.

If guests are interested in viewing galleries in Cape Town, our Art Guide will accompany them for an insider’s tour of Cape Town’s top art galleries. Talita is an artist and curator herself, so guests will gain behind-the-scenes access and knowledge of some of Cape Town’s most important art and art galleries.

We offer a few tours  – each tailor made to our guests’ interest in art, design and antiques. Or they can happily do a self-guided iPad tour of the collection in their own time.
