About this Item

Sir Herbert Baker
British 1862-1946
Rust en Vrede
signed H B & M, dated Feb 01 and inscribed 'Muizenberg, House for Mr Rhodes'
pen and ink and watercolour on paper
25 by 43,5cm excluding frame


The initials H B & M are those of Herbert Baker and Francis Edward Masey, who worked together in an architectural practice between 1896 and 1910. 

This envisioned dwelling Rust en Vrede was conceived for Cecil John Rhodes during his final years while he resided at his modest cottage in Muizenberg.

Rhodes did not live to see the completion of Rust en Vrede but Sir Abe Bailey completed the project with Baker's drawings, taking residence in 1905.
