The Private Made Public at Dulwich Picture Gallery



Learn more about a typical visit to Dulwich Picture Gallery in the 19th century. James Stephanoff's watercolour The Viewing at Dulwich Picture Gallery, c. 1830 is the earliest known view of the Gallery's interior and gives an indication of what visitors may have encountered upon their arrival. See an example of an early Gallery handbook, as well as an original visitor book that all entrants were required to sign. The books bear the signatures of both local residents and contemporary celebrities, including: Claude Monet, Walter Sickert, Rodin, Edith Wharton and Virginia Woolf.
