Paolo Veronese: The Petrobelli Altarpiece

Sickert in Venice

Reconstructing a Renaissance Masterpiece Exhibition extended to 10 May 2009 In the late 18th century this huge altarpiece was butchered for the art market. Three large sections have survived, at Dulwich, at the National Gallery of Scotland, and the National Gallery of Canada. This display brings these fragments together again for the first time – and includes a newly discovered fourth fragment

“A model of what a small gallery can do… if, like me, you thought you knew Sickert’s work well, think again.” HHHH The Telegraph

Ends 31 May 2009

Venice inspired some of Sickert’s most ravishing work. It was here that Sickert really found his identity as an artist, painting studies of St Mark’s Basilica, inspired by Monet. Later he moved indoors and experimented with figures in interiors. This is the first time that Sickert’s magical Venetian oeuvre has been seen together

Exhibitions and Displays in 2009 The Polish Connection

Drawing Attention

16 June – 27 September 2009 In 1790 the last King of Poland commissioned two art dealers to buy paintings to establish Poland’s national collection. However he was forced to abdicate and the works became the collection at Dulwich Picture Gallery. Spectacular state portraits, on loan from Poland, of King Stanislaw Augustus Poniatowski, will be shown here for the first time in the UK. In addition to these loans, work by Antoni Malinowski, the distinguished Polish contemporary artist, will link Dulwich Picture Gallery and Warsaw’s Royal Castle. Malinowski’s work is a meditation on light, colour, painting and the enduring significance of ephemeral gestures, and will be both inside and outside the Gallery.

Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Van Gogh, Picasso & more Master Drawings from the Art Gallery of Ontario 21 October – 17 January 2010 The Art Gallery of Ontario has put together a great collection of drawings. This group of a hundred of its best works ranges from Renaissance Italy to modern times. It includes Guercino, Boucher, Gainsborough, Ingres, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Turner, Léger, De Kooning, and Canada’s remarkable Tom Thomson

Desperately Seeking Conservation Autumn (dates to be confirmed) A display of rarely seen Gallery paintings in need of conservation. Adopt an Old Master was started in 1988 to conserve the collection and over 120 paintings have been adopted. But there are still many paintings which are in desperate need of attention. What the conservators uncover during conservation provides both a context for scholarly research and for visitor enjoyment. The collection can be preserved for generations to come, but this is only possible thanks to the generous support of visitors who adopt. Could you be one of them?

The exhibition is part of:

Best of British The Story of the British Collection at Dulwich Picture Gallery 8 July – 27 September Dulwich Picture Gallery will be exhibiting paintings from its newly catalogued British collection, many of which are not usually on show. The exhibition will not only display the original collection, but will also show paintings bequeathed by other collectors – including the significant group of actors’ portraits from Shakespeare’s time – and the display will offer a fascinating insight into English notions of taste and the fashion to collect from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. There is no charge for this exhibition 

Paul Nash: the Elements 10 February – 9 May 2010 Paul Nash (1889 – 1946) painted beautiful landscapes of the Downs, strange flooded rooms, and classic images of two World Wars. The exhibition includes paintings, watercolours and photographs from the whole of his career, showing how he selected elementary objects, to put them in relationships of conflict or harmony, and found pathways, nests and thresholds between them and within them

Great Sculptors of the 20th Century

The Tudor House and Garden Wednesday 3 June Throughout the Tudor period, houses became more ‘outward looking’ with elaborate gardens and courts. Interest in Renaissance ideas of order and harmony resulted in a desire to control nature. This talk will concentrate on the powerful Cecil family (Lord Burghley, the Earl of Exeter and the Earl of Salisbury) who created the most magnificent houses and gardens of the period Paula Henderson’s book, The Tudor House and Garden, won the Berger Prize for the outstanding contribution to the history of British art for 2000

Jane Brown’s books include The Modern Garden, The Garden at Buckingham Palace, Vita’s Other World and The Pursuit of Paradise The Outdoor Room Wednesday 1 July In the early twentieth century modernist emphasis on the integration of the inside and outside led to the idea of the garden as the ‘outdoor room’. Designs used plants for structure, less for decoration. This talk looks at the development of the genre, the work of John Brookes and others and at modern-day interpretations of the outdoor room.
