Today’s image comes from the Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London. It is the oldest public Art Gallery in England, opened in 1817 and designed by Regency architect Sir John Soane. It pioneered the use of skylights as a means of illuminating the gallery space with natural light. Dulwich Picture Gallery is composed of a series of galleries all illuminated in this way.
The gallery houses an impressive permanent collection as well as hosting regular exhibitions. This image was taken two years ago when I visited the gallery to see a superb display of David Hockney’s prints from the early years of his career including those dating from the time he spent in California.
