Rust en Vreugd
Rust en Vreugd (meaning Rest and Joy), is a historic house and garden, located on the edge of the central business district of Cape Town, South Africa. It is one of the few remaining 18th-century buildings in the city. The Rust en Vreudg is home to the William Fehr Collection of pictorial Africana. It is a part of the Iziko Museums.
The Rust en Vreudg house was built as residence for Williem Cornelis Boers in 1778 who was of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). A rococo fanlight at the entrance of the house has been ascribed to sculptor Anton Anreith.
