Join Helen Hillyard, Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Assistant Curator for a closer look at their Dutch and Flemish collection. Dulwich Picture Gallery is home to a world-renowned collection of Dutch and Flemish masterpieces, principally brought together by the Gallery’s founders Noel Desenfans and Sir Francis Bourgeois in the late 18th century. Helen will discuss key works from the collection and highlight exciting discoveries, revealed through research for the Gallery’s Dutch and Flemish Schools Catalogue, to be published in autumn 2016. She will explore the exhibition series Making Discoveries, which takes a fresh look at the Gallery’s most loved paintings by Van Dyck, Rubens, Dou and Rembrandt, and invites works from other institutions into the Gallery in order to complement the Dulwich collection. Finally, Helen will give a preview of forthcoming exhibition Adriaen Van de Velde: Master of the Dutch Golden Age, the first monographic exhibition of this celebrated landscape painter.
