Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. It's going to be a long weekend here, so we're planning on a couple of fun things after a busy work week — a visit to the art gallery and a movie date, too. How about you?

The home of 91-year-old African art specialist and former gallerist Egon Guenther in Linksfield, Johannesburg was once a gallery — his gallery, actually. The Egon Guenther Gallery was a 1965 addition to the home Egon built in the late 1950s, lived and raised his family. Now his daughter, Miriam Grech-Cumbo, and her husband, Aurelio, live in the main house, and in turn raise their own family, while Egon stays in the former gallery wing, surrounded by his personal collection of stunning African art.
