As part of the fiftieth jubilee of La Motte’s Rupert ownership, La Motte owner Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg invites art-lovers to an exhibition of rare and important artworks that shares some favourite works from her collection as well as the family collection and allows insight into her love for art. The exhibition, entitled Celebrating the love of Art – a personal selection by Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg, acknowledges her appreciation of the arts and their preservation, a passion she shares with her late parents, Dr Anton and Mrs Huberte Rupert.

“This special exhibition features works with personal meaning and remembrance that I would like to share with guests to La Motte”, says Hanneli Rupert-Koegelenberg.

Celebrating the love of Art is on exhibition in the La Motte Museum for the duration of 2020 and features, amongst others, works by Käthe Kollwitz, Irma Stern, Maggie Laubser, Jean Welz and Cecil Higgs from the Rupert Art Foundation and individual family collections.
