Dulwich Picture Gallery was designed by Sir John Soane, opened in 1814 and is the oldest public gallery in Britain. The magnificent collection of masterpieces, including works by Rembrandt, Poussin, Watteau, Rubens, Canaletto, Gainsborough and many more, was originally assembled for the King of Poland in the 1790s. The critically-acclaimed international loan exhibitions and its outstanding permanent collection make the Gallery a must for art lovers.
Dulwich Picture Gallery is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Only ten minutes by train from Victoria Station, this small gallery is easily enjoyed in just one visit. Designed by Sir John Soane, it was the first public art gallery in England and has his ground-breaking roof lanterns to allow natural light to wash over the paintings. Feeling much like a house rather than a gallery, there are several small rooms, joined by archways. The gallery has one of the most important collections of European old masters in the world. Here one can find Rembrandt’s ‘Girl at a window’ and several by Canaletto, famous for his Venetian scenes. An attractive café and pleasant gardens make this an ideal weekend trip. Small charge. Disabled access. Closed Monday."
