I really enjoyed the Edward Bawden exhibition: a C20 graphic artist with a sense of humour and a real eye for detail. Ideally, an anti-social amount of time was needed in front of many of the pictures to pick up all the nuances, many of...More

Small and intimate, but just a stunning collection of art. Highly recommend to pop in if you are in the area. Beautiful little Canaletto also hidden away in one of the corners. Loved it.

The exhibitions here are always curated so well. From Tove Jansson to the current Edward Bawden, it's never too busy and you're able to walk around a few times and really take in the art. They always add interactive bits in for kids as well....More

The is a haven for serious art lovers. Set in the Dulwich College estate, the picture gallery houses a world renowned standing exhibition with frequent hosted events. Today we visited the Edward Bowden exhibition which was excellent.

Edward Bawden’s work is unique both as an artist and a graphic designer. The Dulwich gallery show takes you through his career and development beautifully. As a war artist he drew what he wanted to draw, no one was going to tell him what to...More

Dulwich Picture Gallery is a gem for its setting, its lovely trees in the grounds, its varying special exhibitions, and Its impressive permanent collection. And until recently I would have said restaurant. Alas not the last time we visited. It looks like a new company...More

We found it so interesting that we were two hours in the actual exhibition. That was also partly because we seemed to arrive at the busiest time, around 11.00 a.m.
