We are planning to visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery on Thursday 20 April at 11.00. Founded in 1811, Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed and built by Sir John Soane, was the world’s first purpose-built art gallery. It is a gem in a tranquil green setting. There is a significant collection of seventeenth and eighteenth century European Old Masters. Our visit is planned to coincide with their special exhibition ‘Berthe Morisot: Shaping Impressionism’. This is the first major UK exhibition of this renowned Impressionist since 1950. The Gallery has a coffee shop for those who like to stay for a coffee or lunch. Tickets will go on sale on 20 February and are expected to be in great demand.
Tickets are £16.50 including a donation. There are various concessions available e.g. Art Fund card holders £8. The ticket for the special exhibition entry will include the entry to the regular collection.
We will meet at the entrance to the Gallery at 10.45.
There is car parking on Gallery Road. You can reach the Dulwich Picture Gallery by public transport. The nearest station is West Dulwich (trains from Victoria). It is a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Gallery. The P4 bus runs near the gallery.
