2019 will see the Dulwich Picture Gallery introducing Norwegian artist Harald Sohlberg to visitors, shining a spotlight on the inspirational printmaking of The Grosvenor School of Modern Art and a new perspective on Rembrandt and his mastery of light as well as the return of the Dulwich Pavilion, which will be constructed in the spring and open to the public throughout the summer.

The year will begin with an exhibition examining the work of Harold Sohlberg, which will be on display from the 13th February until the 2nd June. This exhibition will concentrate on the original landscapes created by the artist and is timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth. It will be the first exhibition of his work displayed outside of Norway.

This exhibition will then be followed by Cutting Edge which will be on display from the 19th June until the 8th September. The spring display will concentrate on the brief period of printmaking during the interwar period, featuring work by artists from the Grosvenor School of Modern Art, including the teacher and artist Claude Flight and his students Sybil Andrews, Cyril Power, Lill Tschudi, William Greengrass and Leonard Beaumont.

Next year marks the 350 years since Rembrandt’s death and the Dulwich Picture Gallery will celebrate this with Rembrandt’s Light  which will be shown at the gallery from the 2nd October until the 2nd February. The exhibition is set to include the painting Philemon and Baucis (National Gallery of Art, Washington).
