Dulwich Picture Gallery

Information

Dulwich Picture Gallery is the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery, founded by art dealer Noel Desenfans and painter Sir Francis Bourgeois in 1811, and housed in a building designed by Sir John Soane. The Gallery owns one of the finest collections of Old Master paintings in the UK, with works dating from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. The significant collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings – 228 works in total – includes pictures by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, David Teniers the Younger, Peter Lely, Rembrandt and Aelbert Cuyp. The collection is notable for its strong holding of Dutch Italianate landscapes, and also possesses several sketches by Rubens. Highlights of the collection include Rembrandt’s Girl at a Window, Van Dyck’s Samson and Delilah and Gerrit Dou’s Woman Playing a Clavichord. A comprehensive catalogue of the Dutch and Flemish collection, written by Michiel Jonker and Ellinoor Bergvelt, was printed in 2016, and published online as part of the RKD’s Gerson Digital project in 2021.
