Photographer's Note

Libertas Parva is one of the most impressive Stellenbosch buildings in Cape Dutch style – the remarkable balance of Haupt’s street facade, the imposing gable, and the two front neo-Georgian doors.

This H-shaped, elegant Cape Dutch mansion at Dorp Street was built by Lambertus Fick and dates back to 1783.

The Rembrandt Group bought the whole complex in 1969 and today it houses the Rembrandt Van Rijn Art Gallery, one of the country’s finest private art collections, and the Stellenryck Wijn Museum. The art gallery has displays of famous South African artists, including the talented painter Irma Stern, sculptor Anton van Wouw and his painter godson Jacob Pierneef.
