About The Louw Museum

We are very proud to present the Louw-Museum in Sutherland, home of both NP van Wyk Louw and WEG Louw.

NP van Wyk Louw, born on 11 June 1906 in Sutherland, was an Afrikaans-language poet, playwright, and scholar. He is the older brother of Afrikaans-language poet W.E.G. He viewed the Afrikaans language as a bridge that connects Europe with Africa.

He earned a Master's Degree in German at the University of Cape Town, where he later taught. He received an honorary degree from the University of Utrecht in 1948, and was a professor of Afrikaans at the University of Amsterdam from 1949-1958. He finished his academic career at the University of Witwatersrand as head of the Dutch/Afrikaans department.

NP van Wyk Louw died at the aged of 64 on 18 June 1970, in Johannesburg Gauteng.

When reading some of his wonderful work: you see, feel, and hear the quaintness of Sutherland and surroundings.

Do pay a visit to our beautiful Louw-Museum.
