Dulwich Picture Gallery and Lunch POSTPONED

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

Start: 10.30 am | Finish: 3.00 pm

THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED. WE WILL WRITE TO ALL ATTENDEES WITH MORE INFORMATION ABOUT RESCHEDULING

Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed by Sir John Soane in the early 1800s, was England’s first purpose-built public art gallery. The Gallery houses a permanent collection of over 600 works of art by the likes of Gainsborough, Rubens, Rembrandt and Canaletto, begun in 1626 and developed over the years and includes the Royal Collection of the King of Poland from 1795. Our guided tour of the Collection will conclude with an introduction to the temporary exhibition ‘Unearthed: Photography’s Roots’, tracing the history of photography from the 1840s to the present day, as seen through depictions of nature, which we will have the opportunity to view. This Exhibition is a first for the Gallery in this medium and brings together over 100 works by 25 leading international photographers.

Following our visit we will enjoy a sparkling reception followed by a two course lunch with wine at the Dulwich & Sydenham Hill Golf Club. We are grateful to Guild member Katharine Ray, who will be Lady Captain, for inviting us to the club which has spectacular views of the whole of London. We will welcome Alderman John Garbutt JP, the High Sheriff of Greater London and our Senior Warden, who will tell us something about his role (subject to Aldermanic and Shrieval duties).

We will look into transport from the railway station and between the venues
