Ellerman House's exquisite art gallery


A South African art collection like no other

Art is our soul

The Ellerman House art collection takes visitors on a journey that explores the huge social and cultural shift in South Africa from the mid-nineteenth century to present day.

The art in this collection expresses the true character of our land, our people and our unique South African heritage. South Africa has a special story to tell, a fundamental essence distinguishing it from all others. This art collection weaves this incredible story expertly, guiding guests through a century of vivid expression and soulful moments.

One of our in-house art guides can guide you through our extensive art collection. If you are interested in viewing galleries in Cape Town, they will accompany you for an insider’s tour of Cape Town’s top art galleries. Some of them are artists and curators themselves, and guests will gain behind-the-scenes access and knowledge of some of Cape Town’s most important art and art galleries.


Ellerman House Art Collection Book

Every well-curated art collection tells a story. The Ellerman House Art Collection is no different – telling the tale of a nation with a long and rich history. An electrifying story of triumphs and tribulations all recorded by the artists of the time. Social commentary is a strong theme that runs through the collection and an art book documenting this story was an obvious progression.
Make sure to get your copy while you're on propery.
