Soane's Favourite Subject

The Story of Dulwich Picture Gallery

Francesco Nevola

The world’s first purpose-built public art gallery, Dulwich Picture Gallery opened in 1811 to house a collection of old masters assembled for the deposed king of Poland. Since then, John Soane’s revolutionary building, which incorporates the mausoleum of its founders, has proved vastly influential. This book tells the story of its creation, includes a chronological catalogue of historic images of the gallery, including the original architectural drawings, and charts the modifications it has undergone over the succeeding two centuries.
