About Maggie Room
Maria Magdalena Laubser, born in Klipheuwel, went overseas at the young age of twenty to study painting. After 5 years at the Slade School in London, she visited Germany, where she was inspired by the German expressionist painters. Their bold, colourful, spontaneous, imaginative and simplified paintings encouraged her, for this is what she was inspiring to achieve. She soon began to mature into her own style. Having spent most of her life on a farm, Maggie was one of the first artists in this country to depict the farm labourers and fisher folk at their daily labour. Maggie became known for her farm scenes and colours in her works and became a very admired, honoured and loved artist in South Africa.
This room can also be made into two single beds and also has a Juliette balcony overlooking the vineyards.
