ABOUT : Die Kunskamer

about us


Die Kunskamer was established in 1971 as a gallery dealing exclusively in South African art. Under the direction of Louis and Charlotte Schachat the gallery rapidly earned a reputation as a hallmark for keen local and international collectors seeking both South African masters and established contemporary art. Die Kunskamer first opened its doors in Church Street, Cape Town and was one of a small number of pioneering galleries to exhibit a generation of artists who have not only become household names, but have achieved record-breaking results internationally.

After many years at the V&A Waterfront, we now operate from Fresnaye. The year 2015 marks our 44th year of commitment to South African art.

Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 10h00-17h00 (please call to make an appointment)
