Dulwich Picture Gallery
See a magnificent collection of old master paintings from the 1600-1700s.
What is the Dulwich Picture Gallery?
Dulwich Picture Gallery is the greatest find in London: a magnificent collection of old masters by Rembrandt, Poussin, Watteau, Rubens, Canaletto, Gainsborough and many more. The critically acclaimed loan exhibitions and its setting in the beautiful eighteenth century village of Dulwich, make the Gallery a must for all art lovers.
The Gallery has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and new building, providing essential new services, including the Picture Gallery Café. Dulwich Picture Gallery lies between College Road and Gallery Road in Dulwich Village, Southwark, only three miles south of Vauxhall.
The Collection at the Dulwich Picture Gallery
Dulwich Picture Gallery houses one of the world's most important collections of European old master paintings of the 1600s and 1700s. The collection is also one of the oldest in Great Britain, substantially put together in the years 1790 to 1795. The paintings are housed in the first purpose-built art gallery in England, designed by Sir John Soane in 1811.
Other Activities at the Dulwich Picture Gallery
The Gallery runs a lively schedule of activities including lectures in the Linbury Room, concerts, special evening events, as well as art-based workshops for children and families, education courses for the public and for schools.
Free public lectures are held on certain Thursdays in the Linbury Room, next to the Picture Gallery Café. Topics are varied, making a lively series, and always include an introduction to the current loan exhibition. Seats are limited to 120 allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Sir John Soane's building and the old master paintings provide an inspirational setting for a performance. The Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery arrange a series of events in the Gallery and its gardens. Events are also organised for national celebrations such as Architecture Week and Museums and Galleries Month.
The newly opened Sackler Centre for Arts Education at Dulwich Picture Gallery is a large, light, practical art studio in which all manner of skills-based art sessions, using many types of media, can take place, complimenting looking with doing. The best way to reach the Gallery is by train.
Victoria Station to West Dulwich Station is a twelve-minute journey. Turn right out of West Dulwich Station. Take the first left, which is Gallery Road. The Gallery is down Gallery Road and on the right - a ten-minute walk from West Dulwich Station.
