What’s on at Dulwich Picture Gallery this February

Exhibitions & Displays

Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway
Until 2 June
The first major show of work by Norwegian symbolist artist, Harald Sohlberg (1869 – 1935), outside of Norway. Arguably one of the greatest masters of landscape painting in the history of Norwegian art, Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway is timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Sohlberg’s birth.

And Then The World Changed Colour: Breathing Yellow
Until 2 June, part of Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway
Neudecker’s latest tank installation, Breathing Yellow, has been specially commissioned as part of Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway. A three-dimensional living landscape submerged underwater is inspired by the rich colour Sohlberg used in his paintings and the intense yellow light of the Mausoleum. It will continue to change and evolve at different times of the day, responding to the light conditions surrounding it.

Unlocking Paintings: The Art of Work
Until 28 April
Scenes of people at work became incredibly popular in the 17th century. This display offers a snapshot of working life, from fishing and farming to brickmaking and ironmongering.
